$50 Jews Killed in Poland by Anti-semitic Terrorists, Jewish Committee Reports

Leaders of the Central Committee of Polish Jews revealed at a press conference here that more than 350 Jews have been killed by anti-Semitic and anti-Government elements in various sections of Poland.

Although the government is severely punishing anti-Semitic leaders the terror is creating nervous tension among Jews and many of then seek emigration, a spokesman of the Central Committee said. He estimated that about 20,000 Jews have left Poland since the country was liberated.

(Gen. Joseph T. McNarney, commander of American forces in Europe, today stated in his monthly report, released in Frankfurt, that Jews from Poland are continuing to flee into the American zone in Germany and that the influx appears to have been caused by fear of persecution.)
