After the Second World War broke out, Jewish refugees from Poland, Germany, and Czechoslovakia arrived in Šiauliai. In 1940 the ORT Šiauliai branch opened a free of charge evening course in electrical engineering that accepted Jewish refugees over the age of 15. It was attended by local students (35) in the mornings and by Jewish war refugees (40) in the afternoons. Fifty-three women took the dressmaking course.
