No. 151 :
M. GAUQUIÉ, French Chargé d'Affaires in Warsaw, to M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs. Warsaw, July 3, 1939.

LAST Friday a group of youths belonging to the "Hitler Jugend" crossed the frontier in Pomerania. They were at once arrested by Polish frontier guards and imprisoned. On being informed of this, the German Embassy intervened with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, who immediately gave orders for the young Germans to be set at liberty.

The German Press has not breathed a word about this incident, nor, for that matter, has the Polish Press.

It was M. Beck who reported the incident to my British colleague as a "significant fact."
