Five Per Cent Jewish Students, Quota in Force in Hungary

July 12, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Hopes entertained that the “numerus clausus” provision in Hungarian universities would be annulled or at least modified have now been dispelled by an announcement by the medical faculty of the Budapest University.

The announcement declares that ### while there is room for 700 new students at the University, only thirty-five Jews, or five percent, would be accepted.

This is generally considered an indication that the promises of Premier Bethlen and others to the Jews regarding the modification of the percentage norm will not be carried out.
