Academical Senate Denounces National Democratic Students’ Attacks on Jewish Students

Download PDF for this date

The Polish Academical Senate has decided to publicly denounce the National Democratic students for their March 12th attack on Jewish students in the Anatomical Institute of the Warsaw University, after a street demonstration. The Senate described the attack, in which a number of Jewish students were hurt when the National Democrats expelled them from the Institute, as premeditated.

In initiating the inquiry in justice to the Jewish students, the Academical Senate declared that the question of Jewish corpses for Jewish medical students must be solved by corresponding legislation. The trouble at the Anatomical Institute began when the Polish students insisted that their Jewish classmates be expelled until they could obtain more Jewish corpses.
