Download PDF for this date

A Brazilian senator denounced the Polish Government’s “anti-Semitic bacchanal” and declared that Poland had assumed an anti-Semitic policy as a means of obscuring its internal difficulties. The denunciation was made by Senator Aron Steinbruch, a member of the opposition, speaking on the Senate floor. “The Polish regime is applying the same methods against Jews as the Nazis did on the eve of World War II,” he asserted. He also protested the persecution of writers and young poets in the Soviet Union.
