Marshal Josef Pilsudski’s widow, one of the Polish refugees here, declared today that the first building hit in the Nazi aerial bombardment of Warsaw was a Jewish hospital. “The bombers flew low,” she said, “and it could not have been an ‘error.'”

In an interview with the Evening Standard, Mme. Pilsudski accused Chancellor Hitler of hypocrisy in having ordered military honors paid at her late husband’s tomb in Krakow.
