The University of Leipzig was closed yesterday afternoon following a Nazi student demonstration which the university authorities were unable to check.

No injuries were sustained. The demonstration followed the refusal of the Minister of Education of Saxonia to grant the anti-Semitic demands of the Nazi students.
