Download PDF for this date

Nominations for the municipal government of this city, announced yesterday tions for the municipal administration of this city, announced yesterday do not contain the name of a single Jew. Thus, Warsaw’s Jewish population of more than 300,000, will not be represented on the municipal administration.

Mayor Skarzynski, who recently succeeded in floating a large loan with the assistance of Jewish financiers, will have an administration completely free of Jews.

Warsaw Yiddish newspapers, commenting on the new “Judenrein” administration, pointed out that even the advisory council of thirty-two contains only eight Jews.
