Hungarian Community Will Support University if Numerus Clausus Abolished


A Hungarian community that is opposed to the policy of the Hungarian Government toward the academic Jewish youth, and that offers its funds to do away with this discrimination is the latest remarkable fact in the annuls of Hungarian Jewish history.

In connection with the new policy of the Hungarian Government to bring about a stabilization of the Hungarian currency, a strict policy of economy was introduced by the government, and one of the curtailments was to affect the University in the city of Szeged. The population of the city, however, through its official Council, proposed to the government that it would maintain and support the university out of the city funds on condition that the Numerus Clausus applied up till now to the Jewish students should be abolished in the university.
