The Polish government revokes the licenses of Jews to sell tobacco. This is part of a policy which Jewish leaders label "economic extermination" and starts with eliminating Jews from the civil service, schools, state banks, and state-controlled monopolies (like tobacco).

Wherever state control reaches, Jews are shut out, and because the state reaches into almost every area of the Polish economy, the ability of Jews to earn any sort of livelihood is virtually eliminated.
