Discusses the influence of official antisemitism during the interwar period and ongoing antisemitism amongst officials and the general population. The Polish government-in-exile's chief war aim was the achievement of independence - humanitarian considerations were of minor importance in determining policy. The Polish leadership believed in the significance of world Jewish power and approached Jewish leaders for an agreement on mutual aid. But Jewish leaders were unresponsive, due to a long-time mistrust of Polish governments and the belief that Jews must support the USSR in the war against Hitler. At the end of 1942 Polish-Jewish relations were at a low point. The situation changed after 10 December 1942 when the government-in-exile issued the diplomatic note informing the world of the Nazis' systematic murder of Jews on Polish soil."@en ;
