The Jewish Vocational School Masada in Darmstadt 1947-48


On Wednesday, 26 February 2014, at 6 p.m., the Romanian Cultural Institute in Tel Aviv will host the opening of the documentary exhibition „The Jewish Vocational School Masada in Darmstadt 1947-48”, comprising documents and photographs that present the activity and goals of the Masada School…

The Masada School was founded by Samuel Batalion in order to educate young Holocaust survivors, so they would be able to integrate into the State of Israel. A significant part of the students were Romanian Jews.
