6 pages typed text, edges frayed, of the speech by law professor Rudolph Pabus Cleveringa on 26 November 1940 in Leiden as a protest against the dismissal of Jewish professors from the universities in the Netherlands by the German occupying forces. Handwritten on the first page: ‘1958 gekocht Waterlooplein w.s. afkomstig van G.A. de Mol’. This could be a war time reproduction of the speech that lead to the closure of all universities in the Netherlands. Unique document.
