At the recent dedication ceremonies of the monument erected
on the site where 800,000 Polish Jews were- exterminated by the
Nazis in the Treblinka concentration camp, James P. Rice (right),
Executive Director of United Hias Service, and Gaynor Jacobson,
Director of European and North African Operations of the world-
wide migration agency, were among the representatives of Jewish
organizations who were present. Other representatives of UJA-sup-
ported agencies at the unveiling included Charles H. Jordan, Director-
General, and Dr. Akiva Kohane, of the JDC, and Max Braude,
Director-General of ORT. At the spot, two miles away, where 10,000
Polish Christians met their death, another monument was unveiled.
The Treblinka memorial consists of a large central stone with a huge
engraved menorah, which is surrounded by tombstones bearing the
names of the cities and villages from which the Treblinka victims had
been rounded up.
