ROME (Nov. 17)
At the request of the Italian Ministry of Labor, ORT has opened three training workshops in the city of Trieste for employees, a large number of them Jews, who have lost their jobs as a result of the departure of the Allied government from the city, it was announced today.
The Italian Government is subsidizing the workshop plan. State welfare services provide students with maintenance stipends during their attendance in the courses. Thus far classes are limited to electrical installation, leather work and upholstery, fields in which ORT has been active for some time among adults. The ORT courses are part of a plan to relieve large scale unemployment in the city which has had a serious effect on the local Jewish population.
