Rumanian Jewish Students Urged to Attend Lectures, Risking Violence

The Union of Jewish Students published an appeal today in Curicul Israelit, organ of the Union of Rumanian Jews, asking its members to attend university lectures even at the risk of violence.

Holding that anti-Jewish feeling prevailing in universities aimed at complete elimination of Jews from liberal professions, the appeal urged students to defend their rights, no matter what danger they encountered in their struggle.

Co-eds were among a number of Jewish medical students beaten in a renewal of anti-Semitic disorders at the University of Bucharest. They were attacked as they sought to enter the medical school through a line of pickets patrolling the entrances.
