Nazi Papers Report Poles Attacking Jews

Download PDF for this date

Official Nazi newspapers in Poland, reporting Polish attacks on Jews in Warsaw, declare the Jews should be glad that the Germans are occupying the country and restoring “order.”

The reports said that the attacks occurred on Easter Sunday and were carried out apparently by Polish National Democrats and National Radicals, with many Jews being wounded by knives. Polish circles here pointed out that the Nazis in Warsaw were inciting Polish extremists to violence against the Jews.
