Conference of Jewish Leaders in Poland Discusses Vocational Training

An appeal to Jews throughout the world to honor the memory of the Jewish heroes who fell during the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto was issued in Warsaw by the Cultural Association of Jews in Poland following a conference attended by representatives of Jewish communities from various parts of the country.

The conference discussed primarily the problem of vocational training for Jews repatriated from the Soviet Union to Poland. Details of the problem were outlined by representatives of the ORT, which is training the repatriated Jews in new professions. The conference also heard reports on cultural problems faced by Jews in a number of cities in Poland.
