Download PDF for this date

General Josef Haller, “good will emissary” of the Polish Government-in-exile, declared at a public meeting here that “the new Poland will treat all her citizens on a footing of perfect equality” and that “our common suffering has made us all realize more than heretofore that we are all brothers.

“During the armed struggle against the German invader, all citizens of Poland, whether of Polish or Jewish or Ukrainian or White Russian or Czech nationality, have fulfilled their duty towards the Republic of Poland,” he said. General Haller was attacked by several Jewish organizations when he arrived in the United States on the ground of his anti-Semitic record.
