Soviet Authorities Reported Acting Against Jewish Socialists in Poland

The Soviet authorities have begun violent persecution of adherents of the Bund, Polish Jewish workers’ party, in the Soviet-occupied Polish territory, French press dispatches said today.

Public meetings and newspaper editorials in the occupied area daily denounce members of the Bund and the Polish Socialist Party as “traitors,” “petty bourgeois” and “lackeys of the Polish ruling class,” it was reported from Moscow. They are accused of having sent “class-conscious” men and women to concentration camps.

Trucks distribute leaflets daily in the Yiddish, Polish and Ukrainian languages, especially in Galicia, the reports said.
