Antisemites Pretend They Fear Jewish Attack

April 19, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Grave misgivings have been caused here by the arrival of a number of student agitators identified with Professor Cuza, who is at the head of the anti-Semitic movement in the Roumanian schools. The uneasiness was aggravated by the rumor which circulated yesterday that Jewish students arrived from Chernowitz to avenge the recent anti-Jewish attacks. Professing great alarm, the anti-Semites appealed to the police for protection and a military cordon was drawn round certain sections of the city. The patrols kept watch all night in an evident attempt to defend persons, who are known as pogromists, against a fantastic Jewish attack. Jews here feel the feigned alarm displayed in anti-Semitic circles is to provoke a fesh attack but thus for nothing has happened.
