70 Per Cent. of Jewish Students in Warsaw Compelled to Give Up Studies Because of Poverty

February 22, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

70 per cent. of the Jewish students in Warsaw are destitute and find themselves compelled to give up their studies, because they have no money to pay their university fees or the small amount they need for lodging in the Jewish Students’ Home, or for food. A great number of Jewish students have already left the University and are returning to their homes in the provincial towns, where they have no prospect of doing anything to earn their living, and will have to live on their impoverished parents.
