4 Hitlerites and 3 Socialists Expelled from Berlin University for Anti-semitic Riot Roles

Four Hitlerite and three Socialist students were expelled from the University of Berlin today by the university senate because of their participation in last week’s anti-Semitic student rioting at the university. At the same time the summary court of Cologne sentenced Baldur von Schirrach, the 24 year old Hitlerite leader of the All German Students Union, to three months prison for inciting the anti-Semitic riot at the University of Cologne last week. Shirrach, however, is still at liberty.

The expulsion of the University senate and the sentencing of Schirrach are in line with instructions issued to all university rectors by the ministry of education to take immediate disciplinary measures against student rioters. Speedy punishment for rowdy students and their trial before a specially convened court is provided for in the instructions of the ministry of education.
