Folkstimme, Poland’s Only Yiddish Daily Newspaper, to Become a Weekly Publication

Poland’s only Yiddish newspaper, Folkstimme, which appeared four times a week for 22 years, will become a weekly beginning Saturday. Sept. 25, the Jewish Cultural Association, publishers of the paper, announced yesterday. No reason for the change was given. The paper will contain 12 pages and the price has been increased. The publishers also announced that the Folkstimme’s weekly Polish supplement, “Nasz Glos” (Our Voice), will become a monthly as of Sept. 21.

The Jewish Cultural Association came under attack during the Warsaw regime’s anti-Zionist campaign last spring. Folkstimme was forced to publish official denunciations of Zionists and Israel supplied by PAP, the Polish press agency.
