Download PDF for this date

Minor anti-Jewish demonstrations occurred at the University of Warsaw today in connection with Nationalist student observance of the anniversary of the death several years ago of Stanislas Waclawski, student killed during anti-Semitic disorders.

The authorities closed the University of Wilno for five days as a precautionary measure against anticipated disturbances during celebration of the anniversary in that city.
