An exhibition depicting the key phases of the It’s network of vocational training centers in various countries opened here last night. It will remain in New York for two months and will then be shown in principal cities throughout the country.

The exhibit includes radios, machine tools, clothing, Jewelry and art work produced by ORT students in 26 countries. Nathaniel Kaplan, secretary of the Board of Education, speaking for Mayor O’Dwyer, lauded the “dramatic interest” of the exhibit, particularly the animated maps illustrating the persecution of the Jews in Europe during the war.
