Download PDF for this date

The Israel Legation in Warsaw has protested to the Polish Government against the besmirching of pictures of the late President Weizmann, former Premier David Ben Gurion and Premier Moshe Sharett, which are hanging in a Jewish museum in Warsaw, Mr. Sharett told Parliament today.

As a result of these protests, he said, insulting inscriptions scrawled across the pictures were removed. The pictures are hung in the Jewish Museum for Victims of Nazism and Ghetto Fighters.
