Download PDF for this date

The Federation of Polish Jews announced today that it has submitted a vigorous protest to the Polish Ambassador in connection with passage by the Sejm of a bill to prohibit shechita, Jewish ritual method of slaughtering animals, by the end of 1942. Enactment of the bill, the protest said, would constitute the first step toward abrogation of the liberal principles of the Polish Constitution.
