Jewish children evacuated from various sections of Nazi-occupied Russian territory to the Volga district have been organized into “children brigades” and have helped harvest the crop, the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee reported here today.
The report states that the Jewish children, the majority of them of high school ago, have especially distinguished themselves on the collective farms in the Saratov area, where they work in the fields from sunrise to sunset. One brigade led by a Jewish teacher from the Polish city of Bialystok, Miriam Goldbar, is ten times over its quota, the report emphasizes.
