Sheets of a Torah scroll used around the time of the Holocaust in a Polish city were returned to Jewish hands this week.

The decision to return the sheets, which include passages from the book of Genesis, was made after Israel Hayom reported on a 1925 medallion found in Poland. The medallion, issued to mark the inauguration of Hebrew University of Jerusalem, features a Star of David and Hebrew writing.
