Forty children from the Foehrenwald camp Jewish school today entertained Jewish and non-Jewish inmates of old age homes gathered at Bierderstein, near Munich, The event was organized by the “Bavarian Organization for the Aid of Victims of the Nuremberg Racial Laws.”

State Secretary Walter Stein, speaking in the name of the Bavarian Ministry of Refugees, welcomed the children and other Jewish guests. He stressed that the inhabitants of Foehrenwald–last remaining Jewish DP camp in Germany–should not regard themselves as displaced persons but as guests and welcome inhabitants of the German State.
