Fine Jew for Defense Against Student Rioters

Download PDF for this date

A fine of 200 pengoes was imposed upon the Jewish merchant, Arnold Vidor, because he participated in the defense measures of Jewish students during last year’s anti-Semitic student excesses.

The State Attorney appealed to the court for a milder sentence. Consideration should be given to the Jewish merchant’s state of mind when he saw his co-religionists, legally admitted to the University, being beaten by the anti-Semitic students, the State Attorney pleaded, expressing regret that the authorities did not bring to justice the anti-Semitic students who did the beating.
