Emory Faces Up to Its Anti-Jewish History

Emory Faces Up to Its Anti-Jewish History
October 8, 2012

Emory University is formally acknowledging and apologizing for the first time for the anti-Jewish actions, many years ago, of its dental school, The New York Times reported. When the late John E. Buhler was dean, from 1948 to 1961, 65 percent of Jewish students were either failed or forced to repeat entire years of classes. During that time, the dental school had an application system asking students to identify as "Caucasian, Jew or Other." While the history has been widely known for decades, the university is only now formally acknowledging it.
