Jews in Poland are suffering unprecedented starvation, Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, president of the American Federation of Polish Jews, reported at a press conference today following his return from a visit to Poland.
Even in Lower Silesia, where thousands of Polish Jews repatriated from Soviet Russia are trying to start their life anew by working on the land and in mines, their position is so bad that many of them are forced to beg for bread from the Germans, Dr. Tenanbaum said.
“A great many Jews want to leave Poland,” he stated. “The majority of them want to go to Palestine and many of them wish to seek their relatives in the United States.” He charged the British with being “at the bottom of the fascist terrorism in Poland,” and said that Jews there “are killed by the fascist elements not for any political motives, but are simply singled out because they are Jews.”
