Popolo d’Italia of Milan, Premier Benito Mussolini’s newspaper, declared today that the presence of 3,000 Jews among the 47,000 workers in Lombard industries and 1,000 Jews among the 5,000 employees of commercial houses constituted an “alarming situation.” The paper also assailed the presence at Pisa University of five Jewish professors and Prof. Paul Oscar Kristeller, German Jewish lecturer in German language, at Pisa Normal School.
