Polish Newspaper Spreads Nazi Style Anti-Semitic Propaganda ‘How to Spot a Jew’ on Front Page

A right-wing newspaper in Poland ran Nazi-style anti-Semitic propaganda on the front page, instructing readers “how to spot a Jew.” It was found circulating Wednesday at the Sejm, the lower house of the Polish parliament, as part of the weekly packet of periodicals delivered to parliament.

The anti-semitic literature being distributed to Poland’s parliament lead to widespread outrage. In the disturbing Nazi-style anti-Semitic propaganda, the article lists “names, anthropological features, expressions, appearances, character traits, methods of operation” and “disinformation activities.”

At first, the director of parliament’s information center said the paper was being sold from kiosks inside parliament and they were responsible for the choice of papers, so his office couldn’t do anything about it. After growing condemnation, parliament’s Information center said “the Chancellery of the Sejm will request the publication’s removal” from the set of periodicals delivered to parliament.
