Polish Ambassador Declines to Meet Students Opposing Warsaw Secret Trials

A delegation of students protesting against the forthcoming secret trials of Jewish students and others in Warsaw were dismissed from the Polish Embassy here by a secretary who said the Ambassador would not receive them. The delegation represented a gathering of students, Jewish and non-Jewish, who had maintained an all-night vigil outside the Embassy and the Ambassador’s private residence. The students had urged the Polish Government to call off the trials. The accused, some of whom have been held in Jail for six months, are charged with inciting student unrest that broke out in Poland last March in connection with demands for democratic reforms.
