Stanislaw Kot, Polish Minister of Interior, today expressed doubt over a report published in the London Jewish Chronicle that Prof. Moses Schorr, Chief Rabbi of Poland, has been released by the Moscow authorities from Soviet internment.

Minister Not, who is arranging the release of Polish citizens from Soviet internment under the Russo-Polish pact, said he would have been informed if Prof. Schorr were released. “So far we have no such information,” he stated. The same, he said, is true with regard to Henryk Ehrlich, leader of the Bund, Jewish Socialist Party in Poland, who was reported by the Chronicle as released from exile in Russia.
