Jewish Lawyers Are Endek Targets

Download PDF for this date

Warning against the “Jewish inundation” of the legal profession, the Gazeta Warszawska has launched an attack upon Jewish lawyers by issuing the following four guiding principles for handling the situation:

1) Poles should engage the services of Polish lawyers only;

2) Polish lawyers should not permit Jews to serve apprentice-ships in their offices;

3) The government should forbid Jews to enter the legal profession until such time as the percentage of Jewish lawyers is proportionate with the percentage of Jews in the general population;

4) Unless they wish the Jewish intellectuals of Poland to have the same fate as those of Germany, Jews should discourage their youth from entering the legal profession.
