Endek Leaders Get Jail Terms in Grodno

Download PDF for this date

A group of Nationalist (Endek) leaders were today sentenced to serve six months in jail for participating in an illegal meeting of the anti-Semitic organization.

It was testified at the trial that when the police arrived, the Endeks were shouting: “In Poland, the Government is in Jewish hands. The wives of the Polish ministers are Jewesses.”

At a general meeting of lawyer members of the Endek Party, a resolution was adopted urging bar associations in Poland not to accept Jewish members and to introduce the numerus clausus in the juridical faculties of universities. Other resolutions demanded that rights of Jews in Poland be restricted by legislation and urged Christian lawyers to sever relations with Jewish attorneys.
