WiD a Slaughter of Jews
Be Next European Horror?
While the sporadic persecutions and massacres of Jews in Russia, Poland, Roumania, and
the Ukraine, already reported, are disturbing in themselves, they are but scattered sparks
compared to the conflagration some observers foresee. Thus William G. Shepherd, in a Paris
dispatch to the New YorkEvening Post says that not only leading Jews in France but even
notable Russian authorities, including Kerensky, "admit the possibility that the next Russian
horror will consist of attacks on Jews." In the course of a dispatch from Paris a correspon
dent to the New Yorkay, a Jewish paper, says regarding the massacres in the Ukraine that
. t "the purpose is apparently to exterminate the entire Jewish population."
?1 Regarding the reported persecution of Jews' Tn Poland, Rev. Dr. H. Pereira Mendes, of
New York, declares that that country "is now at the bar of the world's judgment, for the world
has to choose between Turkish atrocities in Armenia, German atrocities in Belgium, and Polish
atrocities in Poland." ,
Poles' in New York, and the new Polish Premier Paderewski, deny that pogroms have occurred in
Poland, and characterize these charges as anti-Polish and pro-German propaganda. To substantiate these
denials the Polish Information Bureau cites Dr. Vernon Kellogg, recently returned to New York from
Poland, who in an interview published in the New York Times stated that while "there were constant
rumors of difficulties of .one kind and another between the Jews and the Poles," he did not find evidence
of any widespread massacres.
