More Antisemitic Trouble at Vilna University

February 19, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Fresh attacks on Jewish students have been made at Vilna University, during the examinations there. The trouble started in the Faculty of Law, National Democratic students telling the Jewish students that they must not sit on the right side of the hall. The Jewish students refused to leave their places, so the National Democrats tried to remove, them by force. The Jews resisted with the result that there was some fighting, and a Jewish student named Koshelski was badly bruised in the head. The appearance of the Rector and the Deans of the Faculties had the effect of putting a stop to the disorder.
