Disorders Close Lwow College; Educators Reaffirm Opposition to “ghetto”

THE LWOW POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE WAS CLOSED TODAY AFTER FOUR JEWS WERE INJURED, TWO OF THEM SERIOUSLY ENOUGH TO REQUIRE HOSPITALIZATION, IN RIOTS RESULTING FROM NATIONALISTS’ ATTEMPTS TO OBTAIN SEGREGATION OF JEWS IN CLASSROOMS.

DESPITE ANTI-SEMITIC DISORDERS INTENDED TO EXERT PRESSURE ON LWOW UNIVERSITY AUTHORITIES, THE UNIVERSITY SENATE REFUSED BY A UNANIMOUS VOTE TO ACCEPT THE PROFFERED RESIGNATION OF PROFESSOR KULCZYNSKI, THE RECTOR, THUS ENDORSING HIS STAND AGAINST SEGREGATION OF JEWS.

DR. TADEUSZ KOTARBINSKI, AGED PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY AT WARSAW UNIVERSITY, TOLD A DELEGATION OF NATIONALISTS HE WOULD CONTINUE TO STAND WHILE DELIVERING LECTURES AS A SIGN OF SYMPATHY WITH THE JEWS SO LONG AS THE OFFICIALLY-SANCTIONED SEGREGATION CONTINUED IN EFFECT.
