WEB DESK: A German women 102 years old finally got her doctorate degree on Tuesday after almost 80 years.
Ingeborg Rapoport finished her medical studies in 1937 and wrote her doctorate thesis on diphtheria which was a serious problem in Germany at that time.
Before she could get her doctorate degree she felt victim to the anti-Semitic race laws imposed by Adolf Hitler.
She notified the Hamburg University about the incident after several years. Three professors from the university visited Rapoport to test the work she performed in pre-war Germany.
The results left them amazed. A special ceremony will be held at Hamburg University Medical Center today, where she will be awarded with the PhD.
She was also awarded for her work done to reduce the death of infants.
