German Government Honors Jewish Scholar Who Fled from Nazis

On the occasion of his eightieth birthday, the Federal Government has awarded the “Grand Order of Merit with Star” to Professor Moritz Bonn, an economist and economic historian of international reputation.

Professor Bonn, who now lives in London, held a chair at the Berlin Academy of Commerce from 1920 to 1933, serving as that institution’s Rector for the last two years before Hitler’s advent to power. He is the author of many books.
