Download PDF for this date

Minister of Education Waclaw Jendrzejewicz today suspended a Catholic priest, Father Twalkowski, on the ground that he was using his post in the public school system to engage in anti-Semitic agitation.

Twalkowski circulated questionnaires among the children asking “whether the Jews spread demoralization.”
