See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Warsaw Rabbinical Association and leading rabbis from all parts of Poland have joined in the protests against the execution of Archbishop Zepliak and the other Catholic pralates condemned to death by the Soviet government. The resolution adopted by the Rabbinical Association also protests in general against the stern attitude of the Soviet government towards religion.

Notwithstanding the protests, at a demonstration of anti-Semites held here to protest the execution of the prelates it was demanded that all Jewish rabbis of Poland be arrested and held as hostages until the priests are released.
