Jewish Children in Poland Repudiate Their Parents; Prefer to Remain Christians

The Central Jewish Committee here today sent representative to various parts of newly-liberated Polish territory to register the surviving Jews there and to provide immediate relief for them.

At the same time, it was revealed here today that some of the Jewish children in the Warsaw ghetto who were given shelter by Christians refuse to return to their parents because they are Jews. These children do not recognize their parents since they have not seen them for several years.

The Central Jewish Committee has established that all Jews in Kielce were murdered by the Germans prior to their retreat from the city. In the town of Ostrowiec only 26 Jews remain alive.
