Download PDF for this date

A group of 450 orphaned Jewish children from Eastern European countries arrived here yesterday from Prague to take up a two-year residence at the invitation of the Dutch Government.

The children will live in a special camp prepared by Dutch Jewish organizations until they are enabled to immigrate to Palestine. They will be looked after by a mixed staff consisting of Palestine and Eastern European Jews, under the auspices of the Youth Aliyah movement.
