Reflections on a Visit to the Union of the Blind of Croatia, Zagreb, Yugoslavia.
Cylke, Frank Kurt; Hanke, Peter
The paper reports a visit to the Union of the Blind in Croatia, an organization serving the needs of 4,500 blind individuals in this part of Yugoslavia. Briefly considered are personnel, financial support, and services (such as braille and talking book production). A separate section describes the organization's library, recorded and braille periodicals, the aids and appliances shop, and the museum (which collects and displays things related to the life of blind individuals). Other services for the blind (such as an income subsidy from the state and reduced transportation costs) are noted. The school for the blind currently serving 210 students at the primary and secondary levels is described. Briefly noted are trips to the National and University Library and Tito's birthplace. (DB)
