Rectors Warned to Be Severe As Nazi Student Riots Grow

Download PDF for this date

Dr. M. Grimme, Prussian minister of education, is understood to have ordered the rectors of all universities of Prussia to apply the strictest disciplinary measures in an endeavor to halt the wave of anti-Semitic rioting on the part of Nazi students. The minister’s order is reported to be the result of information he has received that the student disorders in the varous universities are organized under instructions from a central headquarters.

Yesterday’s Nazi student meeting at the University of Cologne to protest against the Versailles Treaty, eventually became nothing more than an anti-Semitic meeting accompanied by the usual cries of “death to the Jews” and subsequent attacks on Jewish students.
