Jewish Orphans Move 3 Times to Escape Nazi Bombings

Download PDF for this date

The children of the Norwood Jewish orphanage are beginning to think that Goering’s bombers have special instructions to pursue them.

At the beginning of the war the children were evacuated to a home in a south coast town. Later they were shifted elsewhere owing to enemy aerial activities. But the Nazi fliers gave them no rest and recently bombed a school in that town where they met daily for tuition. Their place of residence has been changed again.
