Polish Body Here Denies Jews Are Forced to Emigrate

Download PDF for this date

That Poland is forcing the Jews to emigrate has been denied by the Council of Polish Organizations of the United States of America, which said in a statement the present emigration of 80,000 Jews annually was normal.

While admitting the Polish Jew felt keenly the difficult economic situation, the council said the rest of the country was affected in the same degree, adding that the peasants’ turning to trade in farm products was not a political maneuver against the Jew but an attempt to do away with the expensive services of the middleman.
