See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Twenty-five Jewish children, some of whom were confined in the Belsen concentration camp, arrived here during the week-end by air from Prague to start live anew at the Jewish Refugee Settlement farm at Mill Isle, County Down. The children, whose ages ranged from 14 to 17 are homeless and stateless orphans. Altogether 1,000 children are being brought to the United Kingdom by the Jewish Central Council, and the Jewish community in Belfast has undertaken to care for 100.
