Because two Jewish students beyond the quota assigned for Jews were admitted into one of the Hungarian Universities in Transylvania, a student strike was called at the University of Edenburg.
The strike was started by a group of anti-Semitic students who prevented the rest of the academic body from attending the lectures. Students at the universities of Debretschin and Funf-kirchen declared a two-day strike as an expression of sympathy with the anti-Semitic student strikers of Edenburg.
The strike attracted wide attention in the country and interpellation was introduced into Parliament with regard to the matter. The Minister of Education replying, defended the students, declaring that it was due to the age of unrest which the country is now living through.
