Exiled Italian Jewish Students Will Receive Credit for Studies Taken Abroad

Download PDF for this date

Jewish students who completed studies in foreign universities and colleges after they were barred from attending Italian institutions will receive full credit for all courses completed, under an order issued by Education Minister Guido de Ruggiero.

The order covers all studies after 1938, the year in which the racial law went into effect, and includes recognition, of courses in pontifical institutes and Hebrew schools in Rome and Milan as well as foreign universities.
