Foreign Students Warned to Seek Provincial Colleges

Download PDF for this date

France today is the only country where Jewish students from other countries may find refuge, a number of speakers at the Conference of Jewish Students here asserted. The speakers pointed out that the high cost of education in the universities of Prague and Switzerland contributed, with the restrictions in other countries, to send Jewish students to France. Students from Poland, Roumania, and Hungary were warned against coming with a view to remaining in Paris, where it is more difficult to find conditions enabling study than in the provincial French universities.
