Alliance Urged Between Jews and Ukrainians in Poland

A political alliance between the Jews and Ukrainians in Poland, representing a third of the population, to combat discrimination was proposed today by the Dilo of Lwow, the largest Ukrainian newspaper.

In an editorial the newspaper expressed sympathy with “our Jewish fellow citizens” in connection with recent anti-Semitic disorders.

“We Ukrainians are, for the time being, in a better position than the Jews,” the paper declared, “but tomorrow the same thing may happen to us. We ought to form an alliance. Our policy will then represent the policy of a third of the population of the Polish State. We will then be able to go our own independent way.”
