On September 23, 1941, on the occasion of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah), the Lodz ghetto schoolchildren presented Jewish Council chairman Rumkowski with an album of hand-drawn New Year's greetings from 43 of the schools. Included, too, were signatures representing some 14,000 of the students. The greetings combine traditional holiday wishes with thanks for the schools and for the daily meals. This detail from a signature page shows the signature for David Sierakowiak.
