Holocaust survivor refunded for tuition paid before WWII

An 85-year-old Holocaust survivor has received a refund for tuition he paid to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem just before World War II, the university said Tuesday.

Prof. Baruch Kaplan, a native of Poland, registered for studies at the university in June 1939, where he was accepted for studies in chemistry in the university’s Faculty of Sciences.

Kaplan’s father sent the school payments for two years of study.
