Fighting at Vienna University, Several Injured on Both Sides

March 19, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Police yesterday raided the offices of the Union of Jewish Ex-Soldiers. They conducted a search, but found nothing incriminating. At the same time unknown persons broke into the premises of the Hagana—a non-partisan Jewish self-defense organization—and removed the register of members.

Apart from these symptomatic raids which indicate the uncertainties of the situation in Vienna, a number of anti-Semitic fights broke out in the University today. At the Anatomic Institute, several were injured on both sides by chairs which were used in the fight. In addition two University assistants injured a Jew who tried to pacify the Nazi students.

Dr. Louis H. Fligman has just been reelected president of the staff of St. Peter’s Hospital, Helena, Montana, managed by the Episcopal Church. Dr. Fligman has held this post for a number of years and is also Chairman of the Montana State Board of Health.
