Prussian Students Strike, Protest Against Minister

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Because Minister of Education Becker, who arrived at Koenigsberg University refused to allow any student to speak, the entire student body resolved to remain away from festivities arranged in honor of the Minister.

The strike has as its basis the dissolution of the student bodies by order of Minister Becker because they insisted on organizing on the basis of the Aryan theory, excluding Jews from membership.
