Poland Internes Refugees, Foreigners Overstaying Leave

Foreigners entering the country or overstaying their leave, as well as Jews formerly of Polish nationality seeking to settle in Poland after leaving Austria, are being interned in concentration camps, according to a communique published today by the official Polish Telegraphic Agency.

“The entry of such persons into Poland has to be regarded as harmful from the view-point of the State,” the statement declared. “The minister of interior, therefore, has decided to send these undesirable persons to the isolation camp at Kartuz-Bereza. Action in this respect has already started.” Among those sent to the concentration camp are three Jews, Emanuel Baum, Baer Wagner and Oscar Fartak.
