Polish National Democrats to Launch New Anti-semitic Drive

Download PDF for this date

Plans for a new and extensive campaign of anti-Semitism were formulated today by the National Democratic party’s leaders at a special conference for this purpose at the office of the newspaper Rozwoj. The anti-Semitic offensive will be concentrated in the universities and the municipalities.

Students will be urged to demand that Jews be denied admittance to the technical schools and laboratories while the medical students will be instructed to initiate a new drive to prevent Jewish students from using Christian corpses. The conference also decided to launch a drive against schechita, the Jewish method of slaughtering, and to seek to prohibit the minyonim (religious quorums) in apartment houses where non-Jews live.
