Trial of Polish Jewish Soldiers Criticized in House of Representatives

Rep. Samel Dickstein of New York, today condemned the court-martial of the 21 Jews who left the Polish Army to join the British as “not being in the interests of the Allied war effort.” In a speech on the floor of the House, he asked the dismissal of the polish officers who were responsible for the anti-Semitism which forced the Jewish soldiers to seek a transfer to the British forces.
