have gained high status in
educational ranks in De-

of Israel, contribute im-

gathering of historical facts
about one of the most impor-

This Jewish school, with

deeply-moving work,
have quoted for their pro-
logue from Psalms 78:6:
"So that the last genera-
tion may know — sons yet to
be born, they will arise and
tell their own sons."
The interesting volume is
filled with biographies of
graduates of this seminary,
relating experiences, recal-
ling the legacies cherished
by those who studied there,
who survived the horrors
which resulted in so many
tragedies, the demise of this
school being one of them.
While the records of the
school were destroyed, the
compilers of this volume
consider themselves fortu-
nate in having located
copies of the Festschriften
published in 1914 and 1929,
on the 50th and 65th an-
niversaries of the Is-
raelitische Lehrerbil-
dungsanstalt in Wurzburg
(ILBA).
It is indicated that
additional material to
make possible the publi-
cation of this interesting
story of the ILBA was
provided by the Leo
Baeck Institute, Yad
Vashem, Hebrew Uni-
versity and the Bavarian
State Archives.
Thus, collectively, it is
evident that the task of
compiling this book was
immense, that the story of
the ILBA available for the
future generations who are
being provided with histori-
cal data about a great school
destroyed by the Nazis.
Class lists are important
in such retentions of a sac-
red memory, and the photo-
graphs provided by former
ILBA students help in add-
ing emphasis to the work
illustratively.
The diaries and personal
recollections, shared with
the Robergs and Ottensoser,
add significantly to the
value of the book.
Those who provided
data are credited with
their important roles in
this effort.
Mrs. Roberg, as author of
the introduction, has an im-
portant share in the em-
phasis deservedly earned by.
the ILBA history.
Mrs. Roberg describes
three reunions of former
students at whose gather-
ings there were reminis-
cences and dedications to
the great school from the
memories of which they
keep deriving inspiration.
She declares:
