The trial of fifty Jewish pupils of a Czernowitz high school will take place the end of June in the township Schalz.

The pupils will be tried for participating in a demonstration against the professors who employed unfair methods against minority pupils in the baccalaureate examinations. The trial of these pupils was postponed due to the murder of David Falik, one of the pupils, when they were brought to trial in Czernowitz.

The trial has caused tremendous interest throughout the Jewish communities as it was with this demonstration that the new series of continuous anti-Jewish excesses started.
