Anti-semitic Student Crowd Attacks Jews in Galatz

Download PDF for this date

Order has been reestablished in Galatz after the police arrested a number of anti-Semitic students following a sudden attack on the Jewish population and Jewish shops. While the police took all precautions to avoid any disorders at Braila where the students were holding a congress the students came to Galatz after the adjournment of the congress and organized a demonstration in front of the Zionist hall.

The threats of the crowd of 400 students impelled the Jews to close their shops and to remain indoors. The students then began throwing stones and attacking lone Jews.

At the concluding session of the congress in Braila the students demanded the expulsion of the Jews from Roumania and the establishment of numerus clausus in the universities. These demands were forwarded to the government.
