March 7, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Educational Commission of the Seym has on a vote rejected the motion introduced by the National Democratic Party, to enact a numerus clausus law in Poland against Jewish students. The majority consisted of the Deputies of the Pro-Government bloc, the Socialists and the Minorities.

Deputy Sommerstein, speaking in the name of the Club of Jewish Deputies, said that there was a numerus clausus de facto existing against Jewish students at the Polish Universities, and he could not understand, therefore, why it was necessary to have a numerus clausus law.
