Christian Students Decline Aid from Society Because Members Jews

November 24, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Starving Christian students would rather die than eat Jewish bread, declared an anti-Semitic student leader yesterday in prohibiting Christian students from accepting aid from the Theresienstaedte Geselligkeitsklub, a benevolent society for students, and he also asked them to refrain from taking free meals given by the society on the ground that most of its members were Jewish.

After he had pronounced this ban the Christian students actually stopped taking free meals at the society although there had been 200 Christian students registered there for meals. The Hungarian press comments on the incident as being characteristic of the present anti-Semitic situation in the country.
