Nazis out to Drive Polish Jews into Russia, Ex-foreign Aide Holds

Download PDF for this date

The purpose of Nazi persecution of Jews in Poland is apparently to drive as many of them as possible into Soviet Russia, it was declared today by Edward Kulikowsky, former counsellor of the Polish Foreign Office and onetime secretary of the Polish Embassy in Washington.

Kulikowsky told the J.T.A. that oppression of Jews had reached such a point in Nazi Poland that it was impossible to consider it as the usual Nazi mopping up after a conquest. The main object of Nazi policy appears to be to force the Jews into Soviet Poland, he said.

The former Government official left Warsaw on Nov. 19 and arrived in New York on Dec. 6. He is remaining here indefinitely.
