Download PDF for this date

Shouting “We do not want a Jew professor” anti-Semitic students of German University here prevented a lecture today by Dr. Hans Kelson, professor of international law and a German emigrant, and attacked Jewish men and women students, forcing them to leave the lecture halls.

The university authorities threatened to close the school indefinitely if the demonstrations were repeated.
