Download PDF for this date

The leaders of the Jewish people and the Jewish press are morally responsible for the recent excesses in Lemberg declares a resolution adopted by students of the Warsaw Polytechnic Institute.

Referring to the death of Jan Grotkowski, the Christian student who succumbed to knife wounds received after he and five drunken companions returning from an all night revel attacked Jewish passersby on November 26, the resolution declares it was not the result of an accident but the result of a systematic action against Poland on the part of the Jews.

The Jewish National Council has informed the Minister of Education that the resolution was adopted in the presence of the dean of the Polytechnic Institute who did not demur and who permitted it to be placarded on all the notice boards of the school.

The Jewish National Council demands the Minister of Education act against the rector for not banning the resolution.

The Jewish National Council previously on December 6th made representations to the Minister of Education demanding that the rector of the Polytechnic Institute and the supervisor be held responsible for the anti-Semitic disturbances there which led to the closing of the school.

They pointed out that both officials of the school refused to intervene when Jewish students who were attacked asked for protection.
