The Polish government will stand by its declaration to wipe out every attempt to introduce racial conflicts in Poland, Minister of the Interior Colonel B. Pieracki, today told Drs. Rosmarin and Wislicki, Jewish members of the Sejm, who called on him to protes against the continued attacks upon the Jews by the National Radical anti-Semites.

The Jewish deputies submitted a detailed memorandum to the minister together with affidavits and statements of witnesses who were attacked by the Naras.

The list of case submitted included Jews who were beaten by the Naras; attacks on Jewish homes and shops; robbing private houses; attack on Jewish women and attempts at incendiarism directed against the Jews.

Isolated attacks against the Jews are continuing all over Poland. The main center for attacks against the Jews at present is the district of Mokotow, where chalk signs have appeared on house fronts reading “Don’t buy from Jews.” Police arrested a group of Naras spreading the anti-Jewish boycott propaganda.
