200 North African Jewish Children to Be Brought to Norway for Convalescent Care

A first group of 60 Jewish children from North Africa, who had been housed in a refugee camp here, left by air for Norway last night to spend the next eight months in a convalescent camp near Holnestrand.

A total of 200 children will be taken to Norway from the camp by the Norwegian organization, Europe Hjelpen. The relief group sent a four-engine Skymaster plane to bring the children to their new home. The children will be accompanied by instructors who will train then for settlement in Israel.
