"Dead End: The Economic Agony of the Jews in Poland"
| || || Jozef Djament articles|
In 1937 Jozef worked for the "Nowy Dziennik" (New Daily) journal. He wrote several articles under the pen name Vir.
The first article deals with the idea of populating the outer regions of Poland with “true Poles” since it was felt, apparently, that the south and east of Poland was not “Polish” enough. This satirical article suggests that perhaps, rather then resettling the Poles to those regions, Jewish tailors and shoemakers should be encouraged to move to Warsaw, thus creating an equilibrium.
The second article ridicules the demands by Polish restaurateurs to “nationalize Polish commerce”, and "only support Polish dining
establishments”. and scoffs at the suggestion that liquor licences should only be awarded to Christians.
The third article is a commentary of the then current decision of the Bank of Poland to lower the interest rate by half a percent.
