Polish Parties Move for Abolition of Czaristic Restrictions in Poland

Download PDF for this date

Prospects for the speedy abolition of the anti-Jewish legal disabilities in Poland, based on the old Czaristic law, loom large since the Club of Jewish Deputies, long pressing for legislation on this point, has been joined by the Polish Radical Peasant Party, Wyzwolenie, and the Polish Socialist Party, P. P. S.

The deputies of the three parties in the Polish Sejm jointly introduced a bill in the form of an urgent motion for the abolition of all national and religious restrictions based on the Czaristic laws. It is expected that this bill will be acted upon during this session of the Sejm. The urgent motions introduced previously on several occasions by the Club of Jewish Deputies were postponed on various pretexts, leaving the Jewish population under the disabilities complained of. The hope was expressed today that the present bill, having for the first time the official support not only of the Jewish Club but of Polish parties, will have a better fate, and finally be enacted into law.
