Posen Students Demand Total Exclusion of Jews from University: Another Attack on Jews Follows Memori

The National Democratic students at Posen University have held a meeting and have decided to demand the enforcement of a numerus nullus, the complete exclusion of all Jews from the university. At present there are only 35 Jewish students at Posen University, less than one-half per cent. of the total number of students.

Memorial services for Stanislaw Waclawski, the National Democratic student who was killed in the anti-Jewish attacks in Vilna University, are still being held in various parts of the country, and at Ciezyn, in Silesia, not far from Czenstochowa where there was an attack made on the Jewish population this week after a memorial service in the Cathedral, groups of antisemites on leaving the Church attacked Jews and broke into Jewish houses; wrecking furniture and looting.

The Minister of Justice, M. Michalowski, has arrived in Vilna to open an enquiry into the recent anti-Jewish disturbances and especially to investigate the charges that are being made about the behaviour of some of the Vilna police force.

A semi-official report says that the Rectors of the Polish Universities intend issuing a communique announcing that the Universities will be reopened on Saturday.
