The number of Jewish students in German universities has decreased from 3,950 in 1932 to 1,908 in 1933, official statistics, published today, disclose.

In Prussia, there were in all, in 1933, not more than 1,634 “non-Aryan” students in the universities. This figure includes also students who are not pure “Aryans.” Ninety per cent. of the students were of pure Jewish descent.
