Fascism Invades Roumanian High Schools

May 25, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Student Fascism, which has been ragging in Roumanian Universities, has recently penetrated into secondary schools, as well, and the younger students are rapidly following in the footsteps of the elder ones. Temesvar, with its 40,000 organized Fascisti, has become the center of the chauvinistic movement.

The Fascisti of Czernowitz have demanded of the University heads that “numerus clausus” be put into effect at once, providing for the exclusion of “aliens” in general and Jews in particular. The officials have decided to close the Czernowitz University, following the attack made on Jewish law students yesterday, when the students were mercilessly beaten.
