This chapter considers relations between the Sanacja and Silesia's Jewish minority. The Jewish minority possessed particularly strong links with German cultural circles in this region, thus making them quite important to the Sanacja. The Silesian Sanacja described the de facto union between the German and Jewish minorities as an alliance between forces hostile towards the Polish state. Pointing out the lack of Jewish independence in this alliance, the ruling camp's journalists sharply criticized both minorities. The alliance was based, in their view, on a hatred of independent Poland. The participation of the Jews in the National Minorities' Electoral Bloc, formed in autumn 1927 and headed in Silesia by the detested Germans, constituted a huge disappointment for local Sanacja activists.
