January 13, 1943:


"Conductor Wolf Durmashkin poses with the Hebrew Ghetto Choir of Vilna, Lithuania.
Durmashkin was a child prodigy and a leading musician in Warsaw.
After the outbreak of war he went to Vilna, where he taught music at several Jewish schools.
Once the ghetto was established, Durmashkin organized an orchestra, directed a Hebrew choir, and created a music school."

I have several times heard that the policy to require family members to serve on different ships was put in place because of the Sullivans. But here it is made clear that the policy existed before them, and the Sullivans demanded it be waived as a condition of enlistment.
