'Entry forbidden to Jews' at Polish hotel
Polish media reports anti-Semitic sign posted outside of hotel in the town of Cesarzowice; hotel owner is reportedly an extremist who has previously ignited controversy when he burnt an effigy of a religious Jew and was sentenced to prison.

A photo of an anti-Semitic sign hanging outside of a hotel in the town of Cesarzowice "Entry forbidden to Jews, Commies, and all thieves and traitors of Poland", said the sign.

 

 

In nearby Wrocław, one of the largest cities in Poland, there was an anti-Semitic incident in November, 2015. Piotr Rybak, leader of the extremist "National Radical Camp", burnt an effigy in the figure of a religious Jew at an anti immigrant rally in a city square. According to one of the reports out of Poland, Rybak is the owner of the "The Polish House", the hotel, with the sign.

The website of the Anti Defamation League (ADL) stated that Rybak is in custody after anti-Semitic calls at a rally in Wrocław during an Independence Day celebration this month. Rybak was arrested after he violated his parole agreement after a two year trial for the events at the November, 2015, rally.

 

Last month, Rybak, who was indicted for incitement against Jews, managed to avoid a prison sentence of ten months. He was sentenced to three months of partial house arrest.

In light of the anti-Semitic sign, the ADL called on the Polish authorities to investigate the incident and take the necessary steps against the perpetrators.
