League Against Anti-semitism Withdraws Statement on Anti-jewish Riots in Poland

Three days after it had sent a formal protest to the Polish embassy here concerning the recent anti-Jewish disturbances in Poland, the League Against Anti-Semitism today issued a statement, signed by its chairman Bernard lecache, withdrawing its protest for the time being.

Lecache’s statement said: “on the basis of unverified information the central committee of the League Against Anti-Semitism recently protested against manifestations which allegedly occurred in liberated Poland. Pending results of an inquiry into the sources of this information, the central committee wishes to state that it good faith has been imposed upon, and it expresses its regrets.” In its protest, the League charged that not only Nazi agents but also numerous Poles who were not under the influence of Nazi propaganda participated in the riots.
