Roumania Bars Jewish Students on Account of Jewish Corpses

The faculty of Jassy University has decided that the Jewish medical students must take their examinations upon Jewish corpses.

As the university medical school has no Jewish corpses now, Jewish students, who comprise about 70 percent of this year’s class, will be unable to take examinations and will not receive their diplomas until next year, and possibly not then.

The controversy over Jewish corpses has been one of the bitterest phases of the anti-Semitic movement in Roumania.
