Kozlowski Jew, Sztafeta Says Without Proof

Download PDF for this date

The illegally circulated Nowa Sztafeta, suppressed orga# of the anti-Semitic National Radical Party, alleges in its latest issue that the Polish Prime Minister, M. Leon Kozlowski, is of Jewish origin and, hence, a “non-Aryan.”

“Death to the Jews and Masons,” reads a huge front-page streamer headline. Both Prime Minister Kozlowski and Minister of Interior Koscialkowski, the paper says, are linked with the Jews, Premier Kozlowski is said to have had a Jewish grandfather, an innkeeper who was baptized in 1838.

Koscialkowski, the paper charges, is married to the sister of Russian Foreign Commissar Litvinoff, a Jew.

No substantiation of the allegation concerning the Prime Minister is forthcoming.
