Polish President to Give Art Education to Jewish Boy

Download PDF for this date

President Moscicki received the Jewish newsboy of Pinsk, Nechemia Tschesler, at the royal palace and promised to provide an opportunity for him to study painting at an art school. Tschesler’s talent attracted much attention, his painting, “Poland’s Resurrection” having been widely recognized. Recently he sent to the Polish president a painting depicting Poland’s liberation and Polish-American friendship on the occasion of the Pulaski celebration. The president was impressed with the work and invited Tschesler, who sold newspapers to support his mother and two sisters, to Warsaw to study.
