A book listing the names, biographies and places of death of 2,500 Jewish physicians murdered in Poland by the Nazis was published here today by the Medical Alliance, Association of Jewish Physicians from Poland.

“The Martyrdom of Jewish Physicians in Poland,” is edited by Louis Falstein as a documentary of “the Nazi criminal attempt to destroy two generations of Jewish doctors in Poland and to eradicate them from the memory of all future generations.” It also contains a history of Jewish physicians and medical institutions in Poland from the 15th century to the Nazi destruction and data on the heroic efforts of the Jewish doctors under Nazi rule. It carries studies by Dr. Leopold Lazarowitz, Dr. Simon Malowist, Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum and Dr. Leon Wulman.
