Israeli Students Protest Polish Regime’s Deadline on Emigration of Jews to Israel

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Israeli Students Association has sent a protest to the United Nations Human Rights Commission today against the Sept. 1 deadlines set by the Polish Government on the emigration of Jews. The students also urged that special measures be taken by the UN to enable Polish Jews who were placed as children in Christian homes to protect them from the Nazis, to come to Israel.

The Warsaw regime announced two months ago that it would adopt a restrictive policy on Jewish emigration beginning Sept. 1. Previously it had issued exit visas to Jews ready to renounce their Polish citizenship in favor of Israeli nationality.
