Jewish Students, Right-wingers Battle

Download PDF for this date

Two students were injured in a fight that broke out this afternoon between Jewish students and members of an extreme right-wing organization at the Dauphine campus of Paris University. The fight was broken up by campus security police. It was the first clash between Jewish students and members of the rightist, nationalist student organization “Ordre Nouveau” who have been battling with various left-wing groups during the past few months.

The rightists oppose “foreign elements,” especially Jews, and have recently launched an anti-Semitic campaign. In recent weeks slogans have appeared on walls around the campus demanding the dismissal of Jewish students and saying “Death to the Jews,” The Dauphine campus specializes in political and economic science.
