Chancellor Schuschnigg. The hopes of this group are however, hardly to be realized since it is not at all representative of the Jewish population and especially since this is known abroad.


How the Nazi regime has ruined Jewish life in Germany was illustrated this week in a report of the Ministry of Education disclosing that only 16 Jewish students are now attending the universities in Germany.

Before the Nazis came to power there were about 4,000 Jewish students in these universities. At the beginning of the present school year their number was officially given as more than 800. Now only 16 are attending.

Comparing the number of Jewish students with the total number of students in Germany, which is over 100,000, one can easily realize how these 16 Jews feel. It may be worthwhile to mention that even the 16 are not students registered under the Nazi regime, but are remnants of the hundreds of Jewish students who began their university studies before the Nazis came to power.
