Warsaw Radio Confirms Government Agencies Taking over Jewish Institutions

A Yiddish broadcast from Warsaw heard here last night officially confirmed that Polish Government agencies will take over all Jewish institutions in the country by the end of this year. The announcer stated that the Jewish Central Committee of Poland has called a plenary session for next week-end to discuss the new situation.

Meanwhile, Jewish Communist organs in Poland have begun a campaign in support of the new arrangement. They greet the move as a blow to “Zionist nationalism” and assert that the Jewish institutions will gain from the arrangement because their income will be assured.
