Polish Trade Body Moves to Spur Boycott of Jews

Download PDF for this date

In a move designed to facilitate the boycott of Jewish firms, the Poznan Chamber of Trade has asked the Trade Ministry to institute compulsory marking of such articles as paints, dyestuffs, ink and writing materials with the name of the manufacturer. Compulsory naming of manufacturers already applies to foodstuffs, cosmetics and other products.

The rector of the Warsaw University announced today that the regulations forcing Jewish students to occupy “ghetto” benches will not be applied to classes in air defense organized for the university’s students.
