Poland Drafting Law Against Anti-semitism, Attorney General Reports in London

The Polish Government in Warsaw is drafting a law making anti-Jewish incitement a punishable offense, Dr. George Sawicki, Atterney General of Poland and chief prosecutor at the trial of the Nazis who murdered 1,500,000 Jews and others at Majdanek, revealed today at a press conference arranged by the Allied War Crimes Commission.

Dr. Sawicki attributed the recent anti-Jewish excesses in Poland to the activities of “political adventurers.” These elements, he said, are exploiting the anti- Semitic feelings which existed even before the war and were intensified during the five years of German occupation through Nazi propaganda.
