Jewish Leaders Honored in Warsaw

Two Jewish leaders recently received awards at a ceremony in Warsaw for outstanding public service.

At the ceremony late last month at Warsaw University, Wlodzimierz Siwinski, university rector, presented Sigmund Sternberg with a medal for outstanding public service.

Sternberg is the chairman of the executive committee of the International Council of Christians and Jews.

Sternberg then presented Stainslaw Krajewski, co-chairman of the Polish Council of Christians and Jews, the Interfaith Gold Medallion of the ICCJ.

Sternberg, who lives in London, stressed the need for dialogue in order to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive.

Krajewski said Polish Jews born after World War II who live in Poland are Poles as much as French Jews are French.

Krajewski is also the Polish consultant to the American Jewish Committee and chairman of the Jewish Forum in Poland, an association of business people and professionals.
