The Union of Panel Doctors of Warsaw decided to leave the Polish Physicians’ Union in protest against the introduction of the “Aryan paragraph” by the latter body. The panel doctors’ group includes 500 physicians of whom only a small minority are Jews.

The branch of the Polish Physicians’ Union in Drohobicz, East Galicia, adopted a resolution opposing exclusion of Jews.
