Polish Sejm Gets Anti-semitic Demands As It Adjourns for Summer

Download PDF for this date

A series of anti-Semitic demands was put into the record by two Polish deputies today as the Sejm adjourned for the summer.

Measures to enforce Jewish emigration from Poland, prevent influx of refugees and liquidate the refugee camp at Zbonszyn were demanded by Deputy Stoch. The deputy also demanded segregation of Jewish children in the public schools, charging that they were spreading “atheism and sexual immorality.”

Mr. Stock called upon Foreign Minister Josef Beck to report on the results of his London conversations on Polish Jewish emigration to British colonies. He attacked support of Jewish loan banks as “strengthening Jewish wealth in Poland.”

Elimination of Jewish participation in foreign trade was demanded in an interpellation by Deputy Juzwiak.
