A “mensa,” a home for Jewish students from Poland, Roumania, Lithuania, and Hungary, studying at Italian universities because of the numerus clausus in their countries, was opened here.

Attorney Angelo Sereni, president of the Jewish community in Rome, opened the home with impressive ceremonies.

“Italian Jewry feels its solidarity with its persecuted brethren and is ready to extend to them its help,” he declared in his address.

The Jewish students present at the ceremony despatched a telegram of thanks to the Italian Ministry of Education for its hospitality.
