None of the 25,000 Jewish children deported from France by the Germans have returned, it was revealed here today by M. Jefroykin, a member of the National Children’s Week Committee.

Jefroykin told a press conference that about 5,000 to 6,000 Jewish children whose parents were killed by the Nazis are in France, being cared for in Jewish institutions or in the homes of non-Jews.
