Jewish students will be excluded altogether from German universities in 1934, according to an official announcement issued today by the Ministry of Education. Only ten percent of the total number of students will be women and the 1934 total student enrollment is fixed at 15,000, the announcement stated.

Only those students who are “physically and spiritually mature and of strict nationalistic reliability” will be enrolled.
