Download PDF for this date

A plea to the Catholic Church in Poland to raise its voice against anti-Semitism was cabled today to the Catholic Primate of Poland, August Cardinal Hlend, by Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, president of the American Federation for Polish Jews.

Recalling that during his interview with the Polish Primate in Warsaw last month, Cardinal Hlond had promised an “investigation” of the terrorism against the Jews in Poland, Dr. Tenebaum cabled: “May 7 in this tragic hour once more appeal to his Eminence to heed the cry of an outraged humanity and raise his powerful voice to the people of Poland to cease shedding the blood of the innocent Jewish remnants” of the Hitler massacres.

The Federation also announced that a public memorial meeting for the Jews massacred in Kielce last week would be held Thursday night at the Hotel New Yorker.
