Emory Confronts Legacy of Bias Against Jews

posted on October 12, 2012

Samuel G. Freedman of The New York Times reports on Emory University’s recent admission that their dental school engaged in systematic anti-Semitism between 1948-1961. Freedman writes that the admission at Emory “is part of a larger inquiry and atonement for anti-Semitic practices at elite universities for much of the 20th century.” In a statement, Gary S. Hauk, Emory’s vice president, declared, “We need to be fearless in confronting our past as individuals and an institution. There are often things we regret about our past, but there is the possibility of making amends and of building on the acknowledgment of those things.”
