HAMBURG, Germany - Germany's oldest student - a 102-year old Holocaust survivor – received her PhD
Ingeborg Syllm Rapoport was denied a chance by the Nazis to defend her doctoral thesis.
Now, nearly eight decades later, she is Germany's oldest recipient of a doctorate.
The neonatologist cleared her final hurdle last month passing her oral exam.
Rapoport received her PhD certificate during a celebratory ceremony at the University of Hamburg.
