Oren's Victory, 1947

Source: Picture Section, Oren Ba'Tsameret by Shlomo Kandelshine, see previous post for full details.
From the same Kandelshine book as in the previous point, a curiosity: a first prize diploma given to Menachem Oren (then Chwojnik) for winning a chess tournament organized in Munich by the committee of the Jews who survived the holocaust, Dec. 1947. Before emigrating to Israel, Oren was active in this organization and 'did much for the displaced persons and their children' (p. 17).
