Sažetak This report deals with a school project that prompted the organisation of the international
scientific symposium «Dr. Leo H. Sternbach: Life and Work of Valium Inventor» (Opatija,
Villa Angiolina,18th May 2006.), and the unveiling of the commemorative plaque on the
house in Opatija where Dr. Leo Henryk Sternbach, an eminent American scientist originating
from Opatija, spent his childhood.
The project was realised by the pupils of The Eugen Kumičić Grammar School in Opatija;
Ana Petrovčić, David Deszô, Dominik Pažin, Davor Dujmić, Marin Dujmić and Hrvoje
Tramontana during the 2005/6 academic year, as an assignment of the school history group.
The project stemmed from a special curriculum on the holocaust and human rights education
including the research into the history of pre-war Jewish community in Opatija, of which
the Sternbach family was a part. It was based on the research of original archive material,
biographic literature and the application of the historiographic method of oral history.
The project was expounded through PowerPoint presentation in the course of the symposium
during which both foreign and Croatian presenters shed light on facts pertaining to life and
scientific work of Dr. Leo Henryk Sternbach, emphasising his exceptional contribution to the
development of the medical science of the 20th century. On 18th May 2006, under the auspices
of Roche Croatia and the Town of Opatija, the scientific symposium “Dr. Leo Henryk
Sternbach: Life and Work of Valium Inventor” was held at the Villa Angiolina in Opatija.
Also, the unveiling of the commemorative plaque on the building at 114 Maršal Tito Street in
Opatija, where Dr. Leo Henryk Sternbach spent his childhood was ceremoniously performed,
marking thus the perennial memory of this distinguished scientist (picture 14).
