Poland’s Expatriation Scheme Dropped, Reich Paper Reports

The Frankfurter Zeitung reported today from Warsaw that the Polish Government has dropped its scheme for emigration of 80,000 Jews annually to countries overseas.

The change in policy followed the return of Polish Foreign Minister Josef Beck to Warsaw from London where he had been informed of the British Government’s views in conversations with Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, the paper said.

The emigration campaign hurt Polish interests abroad and had “an undesirable internal effect,” said the Zeitung, adding that as a result of the drive Guatemala and Honduras had closed their gates to Polish emigrants.
