The books (ISBN 965-222-656-4) feature about 220 hard bound pages, printed on quality paper, designed to endure as an historic document. Ya'acov Samid, The Author, has gathered letters, magazine articles, and recent memoirs of the teachers and the students of the gymnasium. The old days come alive. Anyone who took part in that experience will find here a door to his past. All who are interested in Jewish culture in Poland between the two world wars, will appreciate this treasure of authentic answers. It is both an intensely personal, and emphatically national account of the time.
