20 Injured in Disorders at Lwow Polytechnic Institute

Twenty Jewish students were injured, five of them seriously enough to require hospital treatment, in Friday’s anti-Jewish excesses at the Lwow Polytechnic Institute, which ended in the school’s closing, it was reported here today.

An official investigation established the disorders started with an Endek demonstration against the prominent liberal Prof. Kazimierz Bartel, former Premier, who recently expelled an Endek student for making an anti-Semitic speech in his lecture room.

The Endeks proclaimed a strike to last until the student was readmitted.

Among the injured in Lwow was Nathan Trester, stabbed in the stomach. A student named Schob received a serious head injury. Several others were slightly hurt, including a Polish student, Antoni Kronowitch, cut in the hand while trying to protect the Jews.
