Campaign Against “ghetto Benches” Opened in Poland

A two-week campaign of protest against ghetto regulations in Polish universities was proclaimed today by Jewish labor organizations at the initiative of the Bund, Jewish workers’ party. A conference of Jewish and Polish democratic journalists here decided to issue special publications condemning the regulations, which have been enforced since 1937. Scores of workers’ meetings adopted resolutions against the regulations and forwarded them to the Government. Democratic professors announced a decision not to lecture in universities on “days without Jews” organized by anti-Semitic students.
