    Description
    A black and white photograph showing Heinz Lippmann, at left, and a classmate at work on a drill bit at the ORT Technical School in Berlin.
    The school, officially called 'The ORT Private Jewish Centre for Training Jews Wishing To Emigrate as Artisans and Tradesmen, Berlin Ltd' was established in 1937 to provide vocational training for young Jewish people who could not gain access to other institutions due to the anti - Semitism in Germany at the time. The school focused on teaching employable skills and was divided into six categories: locksmiths, blacksmiths, plumbers , electricians, mechanics and welders.
