Eighty Jewish Orphans Arrive in London; All Former Inmates of Nazi Camps

Download PDF for this date

Eighty Jewish orphans whose parents either died from starvation or in Nazi gas chambers, arrived here today by air from Prague to join relatives in Britain. Most of them have concentration camp numbers tattooed on their arms and still bear the signs of the cruelties inflicted on them. The youngest is a boy of three who was born in the Oswiecim camp. The eldest is 19.
