High Court Confirms Death
Sentence of Brest-Lit-
ovsk Jew

WARSAW (WNS)—Seemingly
determined to better their August
record when 350 anti-Jewish dis-
turbances of one sort or another,
an average of more than 10 a day,
were recorded in various parts of
Poland, anti-Semites of all etripes
made the two days of Rosh Ha-
ahonah and the day after the oc-
casion for anti-Jewish excesses in
18 towns and cities. Reports in the
Yiddish press here tell of attacks
on Jews in Lodz, Opoczno, Nowo-
miasto, Kulesz-Koscielny, Belso-
Dodlaski, Czarnow, Tuzanka, Lore-
na, Branczyce, Dlugoszioly, Permit-
be, Czworka, Nalenczow, Grodno
and Piatrikow. Warsaw was also
the scene of holiday rioting.
A wave of pogroms on Yom

Kippur day further threw the
Jewish population of Poland in
a state of panic. The syna-
gogu e at Cselads was stoned
and many windows were brok-
en. Jews from every part of
Poland are flocking to Warsaw
for shelter, and the situation Is
becoming more serious daily.
A new feature of the disturb-

ances was the appearance of uni-
formed detachments of the youth
section of the National Camp of
Unity, the new government party,
in the role of Jew-baiters, and
their collaboration with the Na-
tional Democrats and National
Radicals in assaults on Jews. The
extension of the anti-Jewish boy-
cott campaign to the larger cities
was also evident as an anti-Jewish
week was proclaimed in Grodno.
Automobiles equipped with loud-
speakers blaring anti-Jewish cries
and loaded with uniformed Endeks
and members of the National Camp
of Unity who distributed leaflets
calling for the boycott, raced
through the streets. In Warsaw
and Lublin pickets were posted in
front of Jewish stores to take

The youth division of the Na-
tional Camp of Unity, which is
called the Union of the New Gen-
eration, is offering its own solution
of the Jewish problem with a
three-point manifesto widely dis-
tributed in Warsaw: The plan
calls for mass evacuation of the
Jews, the creation of a govern-
ment agency to facilitate Jewish
emigration, establishment of a
joint commission of Poles and
Jews to find territories for Jewish
colonization, and a ban on Jewish
emigrants taking money out of the
country. "The Jews must realize
that the sovereign Polish nation
deprives them of the right to re-
main in Poland because the vital
interests of the Polish People con-
flict with the interests of the Jew-
bh people." the manifesto de-
