Action Follows Refusal of Students to Abandon Anti-Jewish Aims (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The government of Prussia went on record today that it will not tolerate the existence of a students organization based on the principle of racial and religious hatred in an official statement.

The statement declares that following the rejection by the students organization of the government’s draft of statutes for the organization the state does not recognize the existence of the students’ body any longer. The authorities of the universities were instructed to liquidate the organization’s establishments.

This is the final decision of the Prussian government in reply to the determination of the student leaders to adhere to the Aryan anti-Semitic formula and to join the Austria anti-Semitic student body.
