International Investigation of Kielce Pogrom Demanded by Local Polish Organization

Download PDF for this date

Investigation of the anti-Semitic outbreaks in Poland by an international commission was demanded today by the Society for the Promotion of Poland’s Independence, a local group opposed to the present Warsaw government.

The Society charges “the crimes committed in Kielce are the result of an infamous provocation planned by the secret police of the Warsaw regime.” The government’s policy is aimed at driving all Jews from Poland, it adds.
