Download PDF for this date

A permanent exhibit on Janusz Korczak, the Polish educator and writer who was killed at Treblinka with the Jewish children who were his pupils, was opened at the Museum of Ghetto Fighters at this kibbutz north of Acre. A representative of the Polish Ministry of Education and Culture attended the opening ceremony. It was learned that a special archive to include the writings and documents relating to Korczak–his life and death–will be established at the Kibbutz Museum of the Holocaust. Prior to the opening of the exhibit a five-day seminar on Korczak was held in Israel with a Polish delegation in attendance.
