Photograph | Photograph Number: 40555

Members of the Jewish medical student fraternity at Vilna University.

Jews were excluded from the Polish student fraternity and therefore formed their own. Among those pictured are Jasza Saposnikow, son of Sonia Saposnikow (middle row, second from the left), Leon Gordon (middle row, fifth from the left), Yehoshua Fishman (middle row, far right). Both Jasza and Leon perished during the Holocaust.
