Communist Party in Poland Takes Stand Against Anti-semitism

Download PDF for this date

A report from Warsaw reaching here today said that the central committee of the United Workers (Communist) Party in Poland, in a resolution adopted at a meeting this week-end, emphasized the need for aggressive measures against anti-Semitism.

A statement declared that party will not tolerate ideas and methods aiming at making a distinction between party members because of their national origin. This is being interpreted here as meaning that the top Communist leaders in Poland are hitting out at the anti-Jewish tendency which prevailed in the Communist Party until Wladyslaw Gomulka took over leadership a week ago.
