Harvard Rescinds Acceptances for At Least Ten Students for Holocaust Jokes

2

Harvard College rescinded admissions offers to at least ten prospective members of the Class of 2021 after the students traded messages that targeted minority groups in a private Facebook group chat.

In the group, students sent each other memes and other images mocking the Holocaust and the deaths of children, according to screenshots of the chat obtained by The Crimson. One called the hypothetical hanging of a Mexican child “piñata time.”

After discovering the existence and contents of the chat, Harvard administrators revoked admissions offers to at least ten participants in mid-April, according to several members of the group. University officials have previously said that Harvard’s decision to rescind a student’s offer is final.

 

Harvard admitted 5.2 percent of applicants to the Class of 2021, accepting 2,056 of the nearly 40,000 total applicants. Roughly 84 percent of students invited to join the class accepted their offer, marking the highest yield rate in recent memory. Read more at The Harvard Crimson.
