“What Poland is preparing for her Jewish population will exceed the cruelty of the German manifold,” it was asserted by Karl Radek, outstanding Soviet publicist and former Propaganda Commissar, in an address here.

He declared that while the Jews were treated worse in Poland than in Germany, the world knew less about it. He continued:

“The slogan of the Endeks is the utter annihilation of the Polish Jews, and in this aim they have the silent agreement of the Government. But it is not so easy to do away with 3,500,000 Jews as it is with 600,000.”
