“day of Polish Jewry” Marks Anniversary Today of Nazi Invasion of Poland

The third anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland, marking the destruction of the largest Jewish community in Europe, will be observed here tomorrow as a “Day of Polish Jewry” at a number of mass-meetings at which the memory of the tens of thousands of Polish Jews massacred by the Nazis will be honored.

The meetings, arranged jointly by the American Jewish Congress and various representative organizations of Polish and Galician Jews in America, will be addressed by prominent speakers. The Representation of Polish Jewry in America issued a manifesto proclaiming its unshaken confidence in the liberation of Poland and in the restoration of normal Jewish life there after the downfall of Hitlerism.
