In a symbolic gesture, Polish and German scholars will condemn the Nazi-era decision by Germany's former Breslau University to strip some 260 mostly Jewish academics of their doctors' titles, a spokesman said Thursday.

Jacek Przygodzki, the spokesman for the southwest Wroclaw University, told The Associated Press that the January 22 ceremony being held with the German University of Cologne aims to condemn political meddling into academic life. The two universities will declare Breslau University's decision "non-existent," he said.
