  • Description

    THE UNIVERSITY OF WORLD TRADE IN VIENNA HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR THIS WEEK AFTER A SERIES OF STUDENT DEMONSTRATIONS FOR AND AGAINST PROFESSOR TARAS BORODAJKEWYOZ, OF THE HISTORY FACULTY, WHO HAS ADMITTED THAT HE VOLUNTARILY JOINED THAT NAZI PARTY BEFORE WORLD WAR TWO.

    THE AUSTRIAN RESISTANCE MOVEMENT, STUDENT ORGANISATIONS, AND THEIR SUPPORTERS HAVE DEMANDED THE PROFESSOR'S REMOVAL. THEY PLANNED A MASS DEMONSTRATION ON TUESDAY THROUGH THE STREETS OF VIENNA.

    BLOCKING THEIR ROUTE WERE MORE THAN 200 STUDENTS WHO SUPPORTED THE PROFESSOR. THEY ATTEMPTED TO STOP THE DEMONSTRATION AND SCUFFLES BROKE OUT. AFTER POLICE BROKE UP THE RIVAL GROUPS, THE MARCH CONTINUED TO THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION TO REGISTER THEIR PROTEST AGAINST THE EMPLOYMENT OF THE PROFESSOR.

    AFTER THE DEMONSTRATION, THE PROFESSOR BORODAJKEWYOZ SAID HE WOULD CANCEL ALL HIS LECTURES THIS WEEK. BUT AS MORE DEMONSTRATIONS WERE PLANNED, UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS AGREED TO CLOSE THE ESTABLISHMENT.

    AUSTRIAN UNIVERSITIES ARE AUTONOMOUS AND ONLY A DISCIPLINARY COMMISSION OF UNIVERSITY TEACHER CAN DISMISS PROFESSOR BORODAJKEWYCZ.

    THE PROFESSOR JOINED THAT NAZI PARTY IN 1984 AND WITHDREW FROM IT IN 1943.
