Download PDF for this date

Anti-Jewish student disturbances broke out to-day at Vienna University. Jewish students coming to the University this morning found the entrances barred by Nazi students and a number of Jewish students were beaten.

The Rectorate restored order by giving an assurance that the Government would very soon enact a law restoring the principle of student rights annulled by the Constitutional Court last June, which would again make the German-race student organisation the official representative body of the students, in accordance with the wishes of the Nationalist antisemitic students.
