of Bat Yam was named "Cigarette
Children's Street" Monday in
memory of the Jewish youngsters
who sold cigarettes on the streets
of Warsaw during World War II to
help the inmates of the Warsaw
Ghetto. Nine . of them, adults now,
living in Israel, attended the cere-
monies. Also present were Mrs.
Rachel Ben-Zvi, widow of the late
President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-
Zvi, and Stefen Grayek, a former
commander of the Warsaw Ghetto
