The document concerning the circumstances of the deaths of a former consulgeneral of the Second Polish Republic in Jerusalem, Witold Hulanicki, and a journalist, Stefan Arnold, which is herein presented, is kept in the archives of the Polish Institute and Sikorski Museum in London. Both of these men were Polish war refugees and stayed temporarily in Palestine, the British Mandate territory. They were killed by Jewish extremists from Lehi on 26 February 1948. The content of the document indicates that they were killed because they were influential anti-communists, and as such posed a threat to Soviet interests in the Middle East. The question of whether Lehi had been inspired by Moscow or perhaps infiltrated by Kremlin agents remains unanswered.
