Deportations Signal End of Reich-polish Amity, Endek Paper Holds

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The leading Nationalist newspaper today attributed Germany’s deportation of Polish Jews to the Reich’s desire to increase her own influence in eastern Europe at Poland’s expense and said they meant the end of Polish-German friendship.

In an editorial on the mass expulsions, Warszawski Dziennik Narodowy, chief organ of the anti-Semitic Endek (National Democratic) Party, reminded its readers of the situation precipitated by the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia. Germany, the paper said, opposed a common Polish-Hungarian frontier because it sought to weaken Poland in order to increase her own influence.

Declaring that Poland was the strongest power in territory regarded by German policy as within its sphere, the paper concluded that “that is the real cause of the conflict” which was just climaxed by the mass deportations of polish Jews.
