Authorities Form Student Guard to Protect Jews

Download PDF for this date

A student guard, composed of Right wing radical students, was formed by the authorities to prevent a recurrence of anti-Semitic excesses at the University of Budapest.

In addition, large police reserves have been stationed around the University buildings.

Premier Julius Goemboes himself, previously the champion of anti-Semitic student organizations, is now conducting a policy against anti-Semitism with equal vigor.
