The Foreign Ministry at Bonn will take urgent action to trace Jewish children placed in non-Jewish homes in Germany during the Nazi regime, the German legation here has promised the world Agudas Israel executive.

The Agudah had appealed to the German Minister to Britain, Dr. Schlange-Schoningen, to help it locate such children in the territory of West Germany. The Agudah said it was known that many Jewish parents, faced with transportation to Nazi concentration camps, had entrusted their children to non-Jewish families or non-Jewish welfare institutions. The Agudah asked that full details on these children be supplied so that Jewish communal organizations could give the matter their active consideration.
