Berlin University Closed for Second Time This Week; May Stay Closed

Download PDF for this date

The University of Berlin was closed for a second time this week after being re-opened yesterday.

An announcement posted by the University Senate states that the University may remain closed for the entire semester if peace and order is not maintained.

The University was closed after anti-Semitic attacks had recurred, despite the written guarantee of the Nazis that peace would be maintained.
