2 College Awards
for Ben Levinson

Benjamin Levinson, president
of Franklin Mortgage Corpora-

for his contribution to higher
education by two universities
and by the Italian government.
This June, Levinson, who is
one of the founders of nearby
Maryglade College (Memphis,
Mich.) and serves on its board
of directors, will receive an
honorary degree, Doctor of Hu-
manities, at the commencement
convocations of Wilberforce

bestowed on him for his efforts
on behalf of the university and
his promotion of racial har-
mony and equality.
Also in June, Yeshiva Uni-
versity will present him with
a special citation for his de-
voted work on its behalf. Levin-
son has for several years been
designated an Ambassador of
Yeshiva University.
In recognition of his efforts
to persuade the Board of Edu-
cation that the Italian language
should be taught in the Detroit
high schools, the former Italian
Consul, Dr. G. Della Croce, has
submitted Mr. Levinson's name
to the Italian government for
special recognition.

sistant to President Lyndon B.

Levinson four photographs, au-

and Friends of YIVO. Now on
a national tour, it has al-
ready been shown in New
York, Philadelphia and
It deals with a historic three-
year period during which the
Warsaw Jewish community —
the largest in Europe before
World War II — was forced to
exist within the sealed walls gf
the ghetto.
This was climaxed when
ghetto members revolted on
Passover Eve, 1943, in the first
armed uprising in Nazi-occupied
Europe. In 35 days of fighting,
with small arms versus German
tanks and artillery, 13,000 —
virtually all the remaining able-
bodied Jewish men — were
killed and the ghetto was
pounded to rubble.
The display covers all as-
pects of life in the ghetto
during the occupation, show-
ing schools, worship, child
care, self-help projects as
well as the many forms of re-
sistance and escape attempts
and the forms of Nazi oppres-
sion — forced labor, deporta-
tions, executions.
A special section of the ex-
hibition is devoted to the War-
saw Ghetto uprising, another
to the secret historian of the
whose buried documents pro-
vided the basis for "The Wall"
and other boo ks about the
ghetto and its heroes.
