Berlin (May. 8)
The administration of the Berlin Children’s Home, Ahawa, announces that the report from Palestine about its prospective transference to Palestine of Jewish children from Germany is not entirely correct. The home remains in Berlin in its present form, it is explained. At present it has eighty child inmates. But a group of older children who are being put to occupational training will be transferred to the similar Palestinian home which has opened a few weeks ago with twenty-nine children, and provision for increase to fifty in the course of the autumn.
The Berlin home has a particularly important function at the present time, when so many middle class families are being broken up and the children rendered homeless, the statement concludes. New urgent applications come in every day, and very soon we shall have reached our maximum accommodation figures, which is a hundred.
