The administration of the Vienna University has issued a statement explaining the reasons for permitting an anti-Semitic lecture in its auditorium at which the enactment of a numerus clausus law against Jewish students in Austria was urged.

The statement of the University administration seeks to justify the step on the ground that the Maimonides Institute was also permitted to hold a lecture in the University auditorium.

The Vienna Kchillah has filed a protest with the government against the administration of the University, charging that the administration is encouraging propaganda inciting one part of the population against another, which is contrary to the constitution. The Social Democratic students of the University are supporting the Jews in this matter.
