Download PDF for this date

Pledging the full support of the Polish Jews in the fight for restoration of an independent Poland, a meeting of Polish nationals of Jewish faith in England decided today to establish a political representative body to safeguard Jewish rights in the “reconstructed Poland.”

“We demand of the new Polish Government not only promises for the future but actual proof that the inviolability of Jewish rights constitutes an integral part of the general Government policy,” declared Dr. A. Mitlis, a principal speaker. “Polish Jews must be prepared not only for the present difficulties but for the great tasks of the future peace conference.” The meeting was presided over by Artur Szyk, the painter.
