Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the brutal liquidation of the Lodz ghetto, Jewish officials opened a Jewish youth club here this week.

Rabbi Michael Schudrich, an American who is the director in Poland of the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation, was instrumental in opening this club.

The club’s opening garnered significant media attention, including coverage on Polish television.
