Jewish Emigration from Poland Will Be Adjusted to New Regulations

Download PDF for this date

Recent difficulties affecting emigration from Poland to Israel have been due to a change in Polish foreign currency regulations and not to any change in the Polish Government’s policy of cooperating fully in such emigration, informed sources here asserted today.

According to these sources, the currency regulation changes affect travel from Poland generally, rather than only to Israel. Emigration to Israel will be coordinated with new Polish administrative regulations in the near future under which emigration will continue in the same numbers as before, these sources said. They added that the Polish regime had not changed its known attitude toward such emigration.
