Lwow Jewish Students Protest Suspension of 8 by Institute

Download PDF for this date

Three hundred and eighty Jewish students of the Lwow Polytechnic Institute adopted a resolution today supporting eight students who were suspended from classes for a year for refusing to obey the order of the rector segregating the Jews.

After denunciation to the authorities by student adherents of the anti-Semitic National Democratic Party, all Jewish students in the engineering faculty were searched for arms. None was discovered.
