A Polish newspaper featured an anti-Semitic story on its March 13 front page about “How to recognize a Jew.”

The weekly Only Poland paper put “names, anthropological features, expressions, appearances, character traits, methods of operation” and “disinformation activities” in the headline as ways to “recognize a Jew.”

“How to defeat them?” the headline states. “This cannot go on!”

Also on the front page of the paper is a headline decrying an “Attack on Poland at a conference in Paris,” referencing a Holocaust studies conference in Paris in February where Polish nationalists heckled historians for acknowledging Poland’s aiding of the Nazis in murdering Jews. The Polish government passed a law last year criminalizing those who state that the Poles were complicit in the Nazis’ atrocities.

Only Poland is a far-right nationalist paper run by Leszek Bubl, a musician and political candidate who has previously sang about “rabid” rabbis.
