The Pioneer Women’s Organization has decided to dedicate the Vocational School for Girls in Tel-Aviv to the memory of the two heroic women pioneers, 29-year old Zivia Lubetkin and 25-year old Tosia Altman, who “gave their lives in the defense of Jewish honor” in the Warsaw ghetto, it was announced here today. The Vocational School at Ramath, Gan, Tel-Aviv, is being built with funds supplied by the Pioneer Women of America through its sister organization in Palestine, the Working Women’s Council.
