In a highly symbolic gesture of friendship, the central Polish city of Lodz has offered to host a group of 15 youngsters from northern Israel for a two-week vacation in Poland to give them a respite from the war in the North, Polish officials said Thursday. The initiative, which was the brainchild of Lodz Mayor Jerzy Kropiwnicki, has been passed on to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs for final approval, Polish Ambassador to Israel Agnieszka Magdziak-Miszewska said. The all-expenses-paid vacation will include relaxation and recreation in the Polish countryside for the youths from the northern coastal town of Nahariya and three of their educators who have endured two weeks of non-stop Hizbullah rocket attacks. Relations between Israel and Poland are considered to be among the best in Europe.
