In the interwar period, Jews constituted the second largest national minority in the Republic of Poland. The Jewish minority did not have a territorial character, its representatives could be found all over the country, although obviously their distribution was not even. The so-called Jewish question was one of the most important issues in Poland at that time, affecting all spheres of life. It was certainly the most important issue for the supporters of the broadly defined national camp. Of course, Jewish themes also figured prominently in the national press and journalism of the time – it is no coincidence that the nationalists' message was Jewish-centric. The number of publications on the Jewish community rose sharply after 1931 and remained at a high level until the end of 1938. The field of research is therefore extremely wide, not least because of the division of the national camp in the 1930s into numerous groups, often hostile to each other. Opinions – often sounding rather exotic to the contemporary reader – expressed in the press and in journalism about such a large Jewish community in the last period of its existence under the conditions of Polish independence allow for a better understanding of complicated Polish-Jewish relations and the multinational society that no longer exists.
