Download PDF for this date

The first two Jewish students to be graduated from famed Heidelberg University in fourteen years received their degrees today.

The graduates, who received doctorates in medicine, are Nathan Wiener, 28, and Boris Anolik, 30, both former concentration camp inmates. Anolik and Wiener had almost completed their medical studies in Poland when the war broke out. They have been enrolled at Heidelberg for the past year.
