Records on Yugoslav Jews to Be Microfilmed; Street Named After Jewish Partisan

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A spokesman for the Federation of Jewish Communities reported that the Alliance Israelite Universelle’s records in Yugoslavia will be microfilmed for the Jewish Historical Museum here. The spokesman added that the museum recently acquired a number of valuable items from private collections, in addition to documentation on Yugoslavian Jews microfilmed by the Vatican Library and Czechoslovakian authorities. In a related development, the City Council has renamed a street after Olga Alkalaj, a Jewish partisan who fought heroically against the Nazis and who was put to death in a concentration camp.
