Group of 100 Jewish Orphans Leaves Belgium for Israel; Teachers, Nurses Accompany Them

Download PDF for this date

A group of 100 Jewish children who have been staying since the liberation of Europe at the famous Master orphanage here left for Israel today, together with their teachers and nurses.

The transfer was arranged by the Youth Aliyah committee of Britain, which will take over the care and maintenance of the children. They will be settled at Nizanim which was destroyed in the war last year. The village was recently rebuilt as a children’s center. This is the first time the transfer of a complete institution has been effected.
