Abstract:

Describes the socio-political situation in Vilna and its region during the interwar period, the cooperation of Jews and Poles in the Town Council, and attitudes of various Polish political parties toward the Jewish minority. During the Polish military campaign in Vilna and surroundings in 1919, there was a pogrom against Jews in which Polish soldiers took part. Deals with reactions abroad to this pogrom, and reports written by American and English commissions which went to Vilna to investigate the events. Discusses the positive role of Józef Piłsudski, who gave the Jews full citizens' rights in Poland and freedom to observe Jewish traditions. However, during the Polish-Soviet war in 1920 part of the Jewish population showed sympathy for the Soviets which provoked the spread of the "Jew-Communist" stereotype. This had serious consequences during the whole interwar period. At the beginning of the 1930s, relations between Poles and Jews worsened. After the death of Piłsudski in 1935, the influence of Endecja and of other nationalistic groups grew. There were conflicts at the Vilna University, where nationalist students pled for a "numerus clausus". Surveys, also, the Polish and Jewish press in Vilna and their descriptions of conflicts and antisemitic incidents. Pp. 400-448 contain documents on the subject.
