Download PDF for this date

The Yiddish secondary school and the Hebrew Tarbuth gymnasium have been placed on an equal footing with governmental high schools here and will have the right to issue university admission certificates to their students, the Ministry of Education announced today.

The first institution is now the only high school in Poland where subjects are taught with Yiddish as the language of instruction, two others in Vilna having been closed only recently.
