A “common, decisive victory of the Allies” will regenerate a mighty, democratic Poland in which all citizens will have equal duties and privileges and in which bread and work will be guaranteed to all the people, Gen. Wladyslaw Sikorski, premier of the Polish Government-in-Exile, declared today in a message received here by the Representation of Polish Jews on the occasion of the “Day for Polish Jewry,” which was marked by mass-meetings throughout the country and by special prayers in the synagogues.

Premier Sikorski’s message stressed that “it is right that on the third anniversary of the treacherous attack on Poland, Polish Jews should protest the unprecedented atrocities in Poland which fall to such a great degree upon the Polish citizens of Jewish origin.”

The Representation of Polish Jews, in a special message marking the anniversary, cabled the Polish Government in London expressing the hope that Poland will soon be freed and that Jews will enjoy equal rights in a liberated Poland.
