Download PDF for this date

The universities of Florence and Trieste have established special institutes to “study the Jewish question,” it was announced today over the Paris radio.

The “institutes” will exchange information with similar “institutes” in Germany, the announcement said. Students will also be sent from the two Italian universities to Germany to collect material there on Jewish history and sociology as compiled by the Nazi institutions which specialize in “scientific anti-Semitism.”
