Polish Government in London Denies Lublin Charge Its Underground Murdered Jews

The polish Government-in-Exile today denied a statement broadcast by the Lublin radio, charging underground groups attached to the exiled government with murdering Jews.

“The Lublin radio in its efforts to slander the Polish Government does not hesitate to use for its purpose the most terrible human tragedy – the massacre of Polish Jews by the Germans – in order to raise the most infamous accusation against the Polish underground army,” Minister of Information Adem Pragier stated.

“There is no word of truth contained in the accusations which have been denounced by responsible leaders of Polish Jewry, who since the beginning of the war have most effectively cooperated with the Polish Government in helping Poles and Jews in occupied Poland in their life and death struggle,” he continued. “The Polish Government categorically condemns this new attack against the Polish people and its heroic defenders.”
