Camp for National Unity to Press for Emigration

June 24, 1937
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Emigration will be pushed as the only solution of the Jewish question in Poland, “regardless of the consequences,” it was announced on the radio today by M. Rutkojski, a deputy leader of the Camp for National Unity, new Government party formed by Col. Adam Koc.

Meanwhile, ABC, organ of the anti-Semitic National Radical Party, published a questionnaire on its front page aimed at excluding Jews from the Polish army.

The paper asked its readers whether the Jews should pay a special tax, or should be enrolled in special labor battalions.

Afternoon Jewish papers retorted with editorials asking why the official censorship does not prohibit such “provocative questionnaires.”
