Przytyk Jews Get Set-back in Appeal

Download PDF for this date

The Court of Appeals, taking on appeal the case of eleven Jews sentenced to varying prison terms for participation in disorders in Przytyk last March, gave a setback to the Jews’ case today by rejecting several motions.

Leib Landau, noted Jewish attorney, pleaded before the court for reversal of the sentences. Asserting that the Jews had lived in Poland throughout its history, Mr. Landau said that the Nationalist boycott campaign against the Jews was “based on the laws of the jungle.”
