Jewish Students Are Attacked by Colleagues

Download PDF for this date

Jewish students were attacked last night by National Democratic students at a meeting called in connection with elections on the Student Committee of the Faculty of Law.

Several Jews were beaten up by the anti-Semites. When this provoked the Jews to select their own candidate for president of the committee, they were greeted with cries: “Down with the circumcized!” and renewed attacks.

The National Democrats, with the aid of government students, elected a majority on the committee.

Further disturbances were prevented by the appearance of the police.
