Polish Workers Disperse Anti-semitic Agitators

Download PDF for this date

Polish workers in Warsaw suburbs today dispersed distributors of leaflets calling for an anti-Jewish boycott. They advised the agitators to concentrate their efforts in behalf of the national air defense loan, which they said was being enthusiastically supported by the Jews.

Boycott propaganda against the Jews, meanwhile, was intensified in Warsaw and some provincial towns in connection with the Easter holidays. It was supported chiefly by non-Jewish merchants who were alleged to be hiring distributors of anti-Jewish leaflets.
