December 12, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Noted anti-Semites of Poland alleged experts in the Jewish question, have met here under the auspices of the Roswoj with the object in view of making Jew-haiting a science. The range of subjects covered during the assembly is indicative of the “experts” aims. Professor Konopczynski, a member of the Polish Sejm delivered a long lecture on the numerus clausus as an effective weapon in the struggle against the Jews. Briest Kruszynski discussed the old testament and the later-day ethics of the Jews. The notorious Prince Lutoslawski gave a pseudo scientific explanation of anti-Semitism.

The Jew-haiting conference celebrated also the tenth anniversary of the Roswoj activities. Special services were held in the Cathedral in honor of the occasion, Lutoslawski urging the continuance of the fight.

Founders of the Roswoj movement, among them Roman Dmowski, who now occupies the post of Foreign Minister, Editor Sadzewicz of Dwa Groshe, and others, were extolled for their part in the anti-Jewish campaign.
