Download PDF for this date

The Polish Parliament building was draped in black today in mourning for the Jewish Deputy Waclav Wislicki, who died suddenly yesterday following a heart attack.

Wislicki, who was elected in the Jewish quarter of Warsaw in the recent national polls, was to have taken his seat today when the Sejm opened its session.
