Jewish Congress Voices Concern over Proposed New Citizenship Bill in Poland

The World Jewish Congress today expressed concern over provisions of a proposed bill presently being studied by the Polish Government which would deprive all Polish nationals who fail to return to Poland within three months, after publication of the legislation of certain legal rights.

Dr. Robert S. Marcus, acting political director of the World Jewish Congress addressed a letter to the Polish Ambassador at Washington, urging him to convey the feelings of the Congress to his government so that Jewish emigrants from Poland would not be placed under legal disabilities resulting from a situation not of their making.
