Jewish Students Are Again Victims of Attack in Budapest Colleges

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The “truce” effected by the Hungarian Government with the anti-Semitic Student Organization for the toleration of Jewish students in the Universities and colleges was broken today.

After less than a week has elapsed, since the colleges were reopened anti-Semitic attacks were revived this morning at the University of Budapest and the Technical Institute.

At the University, the Jewish students saved themselves by speedy flight from their class rooms. The fate of the Jewish students of the Technical Institute was worse. There they were severely beaten and driven out of the lecture halls.

The Dean of the Institute immediately posted an announcement that the Institution will be closed. Before reopening, it will be necessary to assure greater measures of protection for the Jewish students enrolled.
