About this Item

Hardbound. 4to. 206 pages. 29 cm. Held at the "Palais du Conseil Général Geneva 26th to the 29th June 1955" "On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of ORT. " "With delegates in attendance from 27 countries, and messages of greeting from prominent world leaders, including President Eisenhower and President Itzhak Ben Zvi of Israel, the World ORT Union opened its world congress here last night, marking the 75th anniversary of the founding of the organization. Paying tribute to ORT's work in the field of rehabilitation as an "inspiring job, " President Eisenhower told the congress in his message: "The schools, vocational centers and training workshops which ORT sponsors among the free nations of the world contribute to the social and economic well-being of these nations. Your congress, while focusing attention upon the achievements of an exceptionally fine organization which has seen 75 years of devoted service to humanity, testifies to the fact that free men can voluntarily overcome differences of custom, race and nationality to work together for a good cause. In the last six years, the ORT leader reported, more than 80, 000 students have passed through the organization's schools. Furthermore, the majority of students now are younger people. Adults had made up 75 percent of the students in 1949, he said, while last year the adults numbered only 25 percent. The number of students in European countries now totals 4, 230. During the last six years, 29, 000 students graduated from ORT schools. Tens of thousands of others had to emigrate before completing their courses.
