Yesterday Professor Greifenberg took All the students in his class AT our school to the little park opposite the community building. This park is on the site of a bombed house, where the Toporol gardeners have planted grass and flowers. Today is green there. Jewish workmen have constructed swings, benches, etc. The pupils of our school went to paint a fresco of animal cartoons on one of the walls of the ruined house. All this done to give the ghetto children a feeling of freedom.
