Jews Total 33 Percent of Foreign Students in Czechoslovakia

The statistics of foreign students who study in Czecho-Slovakian schools, which have just been issued by the government, show that the Jewish students among the foreigners are not at all as large an element as some Czech nationalists alleged recently. Jews constitute 46.1 per cent of the foreigners studying in the Czecho-Slovakian universities. In the technical schools Jews are 27.7 of the foreign students, while in the Art Academy they are only 4.5 per cent. Altogether there are 4,137 foreigners studying in the higher schools of the country, of whom just one-third are Jews.
