On the occasion of his 120th birthday we remember Erich Klibansky. He was principal of the Jewish Gymnasium Jawne between 1929 and 1942. By virtue of his organisational talents he was able to help about 130 students flee Nazi Germany.

Erich Klibansky was murdered aged 41. He was deported with his family from Cologne to Minsk July 20, 1942, and shot in the Blagovshchina forest July 24, 1942.
