Figures which have just been made public reveal the fact that Jewish students make up 24% of the total number of students in the principal universities of Poland. The University of Cracaw has 5,256 students of whom 1,696 are Jews; Lemberg has 6,016 students of whom 2,643 are Jews; Warsaw has 8,842 of whom 2,807 are Jews; Posen has 3313 students of whom 22 are Jews.
It is interesting to note that the Jewish population in Poland is 15% of the whole and if the numerus clausus were to be invoked the number of Jewish students in the universities would be decreased to 10% of the whole instead of 24% as at present.
