Fremier Sikorski Presents Report to Roosevelt on Nazi Massacres of Jews

Gen. Sikorski, the Polish Premier, who arrived in the United States yesterday, today disclosed that he visited President Roosevelt this afternoon and presented to him a report on the Nazi massacres of Jews and Poles in occupied Poland.

Addressing a press conference, the Polish Premier asserted that the primary purpose of his visit to the United States is “to urge the speeding of the war in order to end the atrocities that the Nazis are inflicting daily on the Jewish and Polish populations of Eastern Europe.” These atrocities, he stated, are designed to lead to the extermination of these peoples. “The atrocities which the Jews and the Poles are suffering seem unbelievable, but unfortunately we have proof of them,” he declared.
