It appears that the members of the teaching staff of the University were invited to attend a conference at which the German attitude toward Polish men of learning was to be explained. The tone of the address offended the audience, who walked out, to find lorries waiting outside, in which they were removed and sent eventually to a concentration camp in Germany.
