‘obvious Fake,’ Poles in Paris Hold

Download PDF for this date

Polish official circles today branded as “obvious fakes” the alleged documents contained in the German White Book.

Pointing out that all important diplomatic papers had been removed from Warsen in the first week of the war, these circles asserted the purported documents bore the unmistakable style of Nazi Propaganda Minister Goebbels.

Referring to that portion of the White Paper concerned with Ambassador Potocki, they said he would not, in describing the American situation, have used language reminiscent of Nazi Field Marshall Goering or of “typical Nazi propaganda.”
