2 Jews Wounded in Disorders at Lwow University

Download PDF for this date

Two Jewish students were seriously wounded yesterday as renewed anti-Semitic disorders broke out in the University of Lwow, arising from efforts of Nationalist students to force segregation of Jews in “ghetto” benches of classrooms. Similar disorders occurred at the Lwow Polytechnic Institute.

Universities at Wilnow and Cracow, recently closed as a result of student anti-Jewish excesses, reopened without incident.

Minister of Education Swietoslawski received a delegation of Jewish students who told him they would never agree to institution of “ghetto benches in the schools.

Directors of several Polish high schools issued a manifesto declaring that the Jewish question was most serious but condemning anarchy arising from student efforts to solve it.
