A Polish university is to reinstate academic qualifications on German Jews nearly 80 years after Nazis stripped them of their titles.
Wroclaw University in south-west Poland will return the titles later this month in a ceremony it hopes will bring belated justice to those who lost their qualifications owing to Nazi Germany’s anti-Semitism, and also confront a “dark chapter” in the university’s history.
Up to 1945, when Europe’s borders were redrawn, Wroclaw was the German city of Breslau, and, according to historians, its university’s academic board was especially enthusiastic about stripping Jews of titles.
