Pan-germans Riot in Vienna University

October 30, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A lecture in classical philology by the newly appointed Professor Kappelmacher was rudely interrupted by a band of pan-German students who invaded the lecture hall, shouting, “Out, you Jew swine!” Professor Kappelmacher, realizing the situation had got beyond his control, escaped.

It was only after the riot in the lecture hall that the Rector issued a warning threatening severe punishment in the event of a repetition of disorders.
