May 15, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Continued attendance by Jewish students and professors at the University of Bucharest will mean their death, according to threats of Roumanian Fascisti who have relaunched an offensive against the Jews at the University here. A large number of Jewish students have been savagely maltreated and had their papers taken from them. Albert Gruenberg is among those actually captured by the Fascisti and held prisoner for several hours. Professor Reiner has been informed by telephone that he will be murdered if he attempts to resume his lectures.

Forty thousand students are reported to have enrolled in the “Faszia Nationala Roumana” in answer to a call issued by that organization to all patriotic Roumanians to join the life or death struggle against Jews, according to a report from Temesvar.
