1931 | Begin registers to study law at the University of Warsaw

As a child, Begin expressed a desire to be a lawyer in order to “help the poor and downtrodden”. In 1931, Begin began studying Law at the University of Warsaw, and after four years of study was certified with a “Magister Yuri” degree. While studying, he earned his living by tutoring and accepted a few scholarships, but sometimes, when he couldn’t make ends meet, he was forced to sleep at night on a park bench. Despite the tight conditions, he took part in student life, and was among the head organizers of the self-defense of Jewish students against anti-Semitic rioters.
