Albert BAUM (born on October 22nd, 1885 in Vienna), had graduated at the Medical School at the University of Vienna on June 1st, 1912 with the academic degree 'Dr. med.'.
In times of Nazism he was deprived of his academic degree on May 8th, 1941 with the racist argument, that he as a Jew was not considered dignified an academic degree of a German university ('eines akademischen Grades einer deutschen Hochschule unwürdig').
It took 62 years since the deprivation - and a very long time since the end of Nazism - until the regranting of the doctorate took finally place on April 10th, 2003 posthumously in a solemn ceremony.
