As many as one thousand Jewish refugees who are Polish citizens have congregated in Minsk and other cities in Western Russia, and are unable to proceed to Poland because the Polish Consul at Minsk refuses to visa their passports.
Greek Catholics are reported to be discriminated against in the same way. Roman Catholic Poles on the other hand easily obtain permission to enter Poland, it is alleged.
Meanwhile the Jewish refugees are in the direst distress. Many of them have traveled from as far away as Omsk and Tomsk, in Siberia, expecting to be able to return to their Polish homes. They have spent their all on the journey and are now penniless.
