Polish Jews Protest Against Visa Refusals

Download PDF for this date

A delegation of Polish Zionist leaders today visited the British. Consul in Warsaw to protest against the action of the Consul in refusing to issue visas to Polish Jewish tourists for Palestine, even though they had deposited the required sixty pounds with the British Consulate.

At the same time the Consul refused Jewish tourists visas, he issued visas to all Polish Christian tourists on their way to Palestine.

The British government is apparently afraid that the Polish Jewish tourists will remain in Palestine and forfeit the deposit.
