Jewish Leaders Confer with Polish Prime Minister on Aid to Jews in Poland

Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Nahum Goldman, leaders of the World Jewish Congress, today conferred with Polish Prime Minister Stanislaw Wikoljczyk, who is on a visit here, concerning various problems affecting Polish-Jewish relations.

Following their conference with the head of the Polish Cabinet, the two Jewish headers revealed to the press that they had asked the Polish Prime Minister for aid in behalf of the Jews of Poland and were promised such aid through the refugee board set up recently by the Polish Government-in-Exile in London.

The Polish Prime Minister informed the Jewish leader that all the Jewish soldiers who were pardoned by the Polish President after having been court-martialled for leaving the Polish Army to join British units, because of anti-Semitism in the Polish armed forces, are now back in the Polish forces, or are being re-inducted.
