Jewish Students Expelled As Non-proletarians


38 Jewish students of the Agricultural Institute in Moscow, formerly known as the Rosumovskaja Akademia, were expelled from the school on the ground that they are not proletarians, but members of bourgeois families.

3 of the students were re-admitted when they submitted proof of their proletarian origin.
