Will Not Protest on Jews, Polish Embassy in Berlin States

Download PDF for this date

The Polish Embassy has no intention of protesting to the German Government against reported persecution of Polish Jewish citizens of Germany, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was officially informed today by the Embassy.

The statement was made in the course of a denial of Warsaw reports that the Embassy, upon instructions from the Polish Government, had sent a note of protest to the German Government.

According to the Embassy, there are no grounds for such action.

Admitting that discriminations against Polish Jewish citizens of Germany are assuming a mass character, an Embassy spokesman asserted that each case is being taken up individually. He said the Embassy has received no instructions to submit a note of protest to the German Government and therefore has no intention of doing so.

Referring to the recent deportations of many Polish Jews, the Embassy spokesman voiced the opinion that they are being executed on legal grounds. He said that the deportations are “within the framework of German law,” and that therefore intervention is impossible.

A conference of Polish Jews, at which plans for migration were to be discussed, has been postponed until late in January, as a result of a decree forbidding meetings before January 15.
