Sigmund Rolat Made an Honorary Professor

of the Jan Długosz University of Częstochowa

In 2014, our World Society President, Sigmund Rolat, was made an Honorary Professor of the Jan Długosz University of Częstochowa.

The induction took place on 7th October 2014 at a ceremony marking the start of the institution’s 44th academic year. The audience witnessing the event included Sigmund’s children, Geoffrey and Samantha, the Częstochowa Mayor and City Councillors, and senior members of the Academy’s professorial staff.

The honour was bestowed on Sigmund in recognition of his contribution to the University’s research programmes and to the awareness of Częstochowa’s Jewish history.

(The video makes mention of the Academy gaining the status of a “University”. This was achieved in 2018.)

Below is how local television station TV Orion covered the event.
