JDC Will Open Orphanage for Children from Beisen on Estate of Warburg Family

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A special home for orphaned children of the Belsen concentration camp will be opened in a Hamburg suburb early this month, it was announced here by David Rothman of the Joint Distribution Committee.

Some 300 children up to the age of 16 will be cared for on the estate of the Warburg family, which fled Germany in 1938. The Germans took over the estate, but it is now legally considered the property of the Warburg family, which placed it at the J.D.C.’s disposal.
