March 27, 1968

A resolution condemning the latest demonstration of anti-Semitism in Poland and calling on the Polish Government to permit the emigration of the remnants of the once great Polish Jewish community was adopted here last night by the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament.

The resolution pointed out that “since the Six-Day War in which Israel vanquished the aggressors who had openly threatened to destroy her, the Polish Government had taken the most serious anti-Israeli position. This policy was soon turned into a campaign of defamation against the remnants of the holocaust in Poland.

“This anti-Jew hatred,” it said, “has been well-known from the days of the tsars to the days of Stalin. Even today. It is one of the moral atrocities of our times.” The resolution concluded with an appeal to enlightened elements in the world to intervene to protect the Jews in Poland.
