Roumanian Antisemitic Student Movement Anniversary Passes Quietly.

Download PDF for this date

The anniversary of the Roumanian antisemitic student movement which occurred yesterday and which in past years has generally been a day of anti-Jewish demonstrations and outbreaks, passed this year without any disturbances, although there was considerable apprehension among the Jewish populations in a number of places.

No attacks were made anywhere on Jews in the streets, and no hostile demonstrations were held outside Jewish buildings or shops.

In Jassy and in Bucharest there were big student meetings, but no attempt was made at anti-Jewish rioting. In Bucharest about 1,000 students marched through the Boulevard Academiei and the Galea Victoriei, the principal street, in which the Royal Palace is situated, and one student marching at the head kept shouting the epithet “Jidani” through a megaphone. Before dispersing, the students held a patriotic manifestation outside the Royal Palace, which was acknowledged by the King from the balcony.
