Download PDF for this date

Father Trzecziak, notorious Jew-baiter, has been dismissed by the Catholic Episcopate from his post as minister of St. Jacek Church and from the rectorate of the Catholic Priest Seminary, it was revealed here today.

Dismissal followed his refusal to sue for libel Prof. Zadereski, a Christian, and Hillel Seidman, who had published pamphlets proving that Father Trzecziak had misquoted and distorted passages from the Talmud for anti-Semitic purposes. The Episcopate at the same time prohibited the priest from making any public appearances.
