Celebrating the 100th birthday of Dr. Zoltán Schwimmer

On December 23, 2015 Czech Embassy participated on the celebration of 100th birthday of Czech compatriot Dr. Zoltán Schwimmer in Netanya.
Mr. Zoltán Schwimmer ( * 1915) studied at the Medical Faculty of Masaryk University in Brno since 1936. He only managed to finish six semesters before the Nazis prevented him from further studies in 1939 because of his Jewish origin. Mr. Schwimmer survived holocaust, married a Czech teacher and moved to Israel. He celebrated in good health his hundredth birthday and 65th wedding anniversary. Masaryk University in Brno made the 100th birthday even more special and awarded Zoltan Schwimmer with the honorary title M.D. given by the deputy head of mission Karel Pažourek. Congratulations dear Dr. Schwimmer!
