Statement of the Bishop’s Conference
In the context of the events that took place in Pruchnik on April 19, the Church clearly expresses her disapproval of practices that violates human dignity. The Catholic Church will never tolerate manifestations of contempt towards members of any nation, including the Jewish people.

We thank the Bishop’s Conference for their clear, unequivocal and quick response to the anti-Semitic beating and bur
ning of a Jew in effigy in Pruchnik.
We will continue to work closely with our brothers of the Bishop Conference in fighting hate whether it be in Sri Lanka or in our beloved Poland
