Polish university reinstates degrees earned by German Jews in Nazi era

Wroclaw University in southwest Poland has reinstated academic degrees of German Jews nearly 80 years after Nazis revoked their titles, according to The Telegraph in the United Kingdom.

Due to antisemitism, the university—which during the Nazi era was within German borders—had illegitimately revoked the degrees of more than 260 people.

Relatives of the graduates were scheduled to attend a ceremony Jan. 22 reconferring the degrees.
