Jews of Danzig Ask Poland’s Protection

Download PDF for this date

Poland and Polish Jews were urged today to protect the Jews of the Free City of Danzig from the discriminatory policies recently embarked upon by the authorities there. A committee of Danzig Jewish artisans now in this city called upon the Minister of Commerce and upon the Jewish Economic Committee to ask for aid.

Danzig, which is a self-governing area under the supervision of the League of Nations, and a German-Polish convention, recently came under control of radical Nazi elements which have begun strict application of the “Aryan paragraph” to Jews in the trades.
