Issue of Women's American ORT newspaper

Publication | Accession Number: 1988.72.21

Issue of the newspaper published by Women's American Ort in Mar 1972 kept by Louis Walinsky, ORT Director of vocational schools in displaced persons camps in Europe in 1947. It has an article by Jacob Olejski on ORT's work in dp camps in Germany. Olejski and Walinsky met working in dp camps. After the war ended in May 1945, ORT opened vocational training schools in dp camps. The schools trained Holocaust survivors in practical skills such as metalworking, carpentry, dress making, and mechanics, so they could establish new lives after they immigrated. Louis, a teacher and economist, was sent to Europe to work for World ORT. Louis became Secretary-General for ORT in 1948, and returned to the US in 1949.
