Anti-semitic Nest in Munich University

Download PDF for this date

The University of Munich, a few years ago the center of anti-Semitic student agitation in Germany, is again becoming a nest of reactionary and anti-Semitic propaganda, under the rule of the present Rector, Professor Bumke.

The Democratic press here states that all democratic students find themselves in difficulties with the University authorities, while the Hitlerist students are given full freedom and advancement. Adolph Hitler, it is stated, was present and spoke during a lecture delivered by Professor Spann, a prominent Vienna anti-Semite, who took as his subject the need of doing away with the Jewish influence in Philosophy. After the lecture a Hitlerist gathering was held in the University Building.

It was from this University that Professor Richard Willstaetter, noted chemist and Nobel Prize winner, was compelled to resign because he is a Jew.
