Nara Papers Incite Poles Against Jews

Download PDF for this date

For throwing a stench bomb into a Jewish shop in Wilno, Wladsylaw Swiecki, a member of the anti-Semitic National Democratic Party, was sentenced today, by the Wilno court, to two weeks imprisonment.

The anti-Semitic Nara press continues to publish inciting articles against Jewish traders and advises boycotting Jewish stores. The papers gleefully emphasize that many Jews are selling out their holdings in Poland and are proceeding abroad because they find it difficult to remain in Poland.

The papers advise the Polish population not to be too hasty in buying Jewish property since “within the near future the Jews will be compelled to sell out their immovables for much less than they are now asking.”
