Polish Jews May Plant Forest for Pilsudski

Download PDF for this date

A project to plant a forest in Palestine in honor of Marshal Josef Pilsudski was under consideration today by representatives of various Jewish communities in Poland.

The Gazeta Warszawska, organ of the anti-Semitic National Democratic Party, was expelled today from the Press Association of the Polish Republic for its “tactless attitude” while the nation was mourning the death of Marshal Pilsudski. The Press Association comprises all newspapers in Poland. The expulsion was decided on at a special session called for this purpose.
