Endek Leader on Trial for Anti-jewish Raid on Myslenice Year Ago

Trial of Adam Doboszynski, president of the Cracow district Endek Party, on charges of leading a band of marauders in a midnight anti-Semitic raid on the nearby town of Myslenice last June, opened here today before a crowded courtroom.

Doboszynski, conducting his own defense, said the raid had been motivated by what he termed the “Judaising” of Poland and the murder of Sergeant Bujak in the town of Minsk-Mazowiec, the crime for which a Jew has just been sentenced to death by a Warsaw district court.

The defendant’s demand that Jewish newspaper men covering the trial be removed from the courtroom was rejected.
