Commercial High School is Closed Following Attacks

Download PDF for this date

The Commercial High School was closed today following a Nazi attack upon Jewish students in which scores were injured with knuckle dusters.

Five Jewish students, including two Roumanian Jews, sustained severe injuries. The Roumanian students bleeding from their wounds, proceeded to the Roumanian Embassy to ask protection.

The Roumanian Embassy, following in line with the American Embassy, has lodged formal protest with the Austrian government.

An attempt to create new disturbances was made this morning at the Polytechnic Institute. As a result the compulsory presentation of credentials by students was instituted.
