Dr. Eduard Rosenthal, the famous jurist, died in Jena last night at the age of 72.

Professor Rosenthal taught at the University of Jena since 1880. He became Professor of German Law in 1896.

He also took an active part in political life in Thuringia, being a leader of the Thuringian Democratic Party since its formation. Until last year he was a deputy and led the Democratic Fraction in the Diet. He resigned his seat in protest against the anti-Semitic policy of the Government and withdrew from political life.

In 1920 Professor Rosenthal was given the freedom of the city of Jena in recognition of his work for the good of the city.
