Download PDF for this date

Gen. Wladyslaw Anders, Polish anti-Semitic leader, has arrived in Washington and is conferring with American officials. He said on arrival that he is here to “renew old acquaintances among my American comrades-in-arms from the European battlegrounds of World War II.”

Following objection by Jewish organizations to Anders’ clearance, the Washington Times-Herald said today of the General that “Communists and their fellow travelers call him a ‘fascist bandit.'” The paper headlined him as a “Polish here and foe of Reds.”
