Antisemitic Students’ Organisation in Poland Declared Illegal by Government: All Activity Prohibited

Download PDF for this date

The Federation of Polish National Students is now an illegal organisation in Poland, and its activity is prohibited, the Minister of Education, M. Jendrzjewicz, has today notified the Senates of the Universities.

The Federation, which is notoriously antisemitic, has insistently been demanding the enforcement of a numerus clausus against Jews, that is, the total prohibition of Jewish students at the Polish Universities. The Federation is a stronghold of the antisemitic National Democratic Party, which is in opposition to the present Pilsudski regime.
