Problem of Corpses for Jewish Medical Students to Be Discussed

August 17, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The question of Jewish medical students supplying Jewish medical corpses for anatomical study in the Warsaw University Medical College will be discussed at a special conference of representatives of Polish-Jewish organizations that will be called for this purpose here in Warsaw next month.

For the past few years authorities of Polish medical colleges have been complaining over the fact that Jews do not supply their quota of medical corpses for anatomical study purposes. This has been used as an argument for barring Jews from the medical colleges. On the eve of the new academic year 1930-31 the question has again been raised. It is expected that the Jewish conference next month will come to an agreement with the medical authorities on this matter.
