A Portrait of a Student in a Hebrew Preschool in Bedzin, Poland

Wednesday, 04 May 2016

Dear Friends,

In the recently published Prism Journal (#8, Spring 2016), published by Yeshiva University you can find the attached article:
"A Portrait of a Student in a Hebrew Preschool in Bedzin, Poland" by Galia Shenberg and Miriam Yeshaya.
Henia Szenberg was a 5-year-old preschool student in Bedzin, Poland, whose growth and development were lovingly chronicled in a journal kept by her teacher, Ora Glinka. Researchers Galia Shenberg and Miriam Yeshaya, the latter Glinka’s daughter, note that Glinka’s journal “is among the last traces” of Henia and the other Jewish children from this Hebrew Zionist pre-school and serves as a “vivid memorial” to those who were murdered in the Holocaust. Layer this essay with the photos curated by Ann Weiss (pp. 26–40), also artifacts from Bedzin
Henia Shenberg was my sister (from my father's side).
Chag Sameach to all of you!
