Jewish Corpses Violated by Nazi Students in Berlin University: Swastika Emblem Cut on Bodies Kept in

Nazi students have been making a practice of violating Jewish corpses lying in the mortuary of the Berlin University Anatomical Institute, where they have been taken to be used for dissecting purposes, by cutting the antisemitic emblem, the swastika, on the body, the Communist papers here report.

The Press Bureau of Berlin University declared to the J.T.A. on enquiry to-day that the University authorities have no knowledge at all of such acts having been committed. The “Welt am Abend” repeats the accusation, however, this evening, and insists that despite all denials, the charge is true.

The Minister of Education, Dr. Grimme, the J.T.A. learns, has ordered an enquiry to be made into the charge.
