Polish President Boleslaw Beirut, in an audience granted to William Bein, Joint Distribution Committee director, and local Jewish leaders, expressed the hope that Poland would “shed the remainders of racial prejudice” during 1947.

He told the Jewish representatives that he hoped their work would continue, and that with their aid the Jewish population would be able to further develop its communal life on a basis of full equality with the rest of the Polish people. President Beirut also declared that their aid was of benefit not only to the Jews but to the country in general.
