Re-orientation

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish student is becoming a problem in Europe. This is indicated in a report just published by the International Student Service in Geneva.

The report emphasizes that anti-Semitic movements have arisen in certain university towns through an influx of emigrant students from Germany. This has necessitated a more careful distribution of Jewish emigrant students over the various countries and universities in the year just past.

As for 1935, the International Student Service makes it a point to emphasize that “special efforts will be made to persuade Jewish students to re-orientate and contribute in this way to a solution of the so – called Jewish question.” This is the first occasion that the International Student Service, known for its work in relationships between Jews and non-Jews, finds it necessary to include “re-orientation of Jewish students” in the program of its activities.
