Deep in the woods near the old Dutch town, 500 young Jewish orphans are hard at work preparing for life in the Jewish State of Israel, where they will go as soon as resettlement plans are made. The youngsters, whose parents were killed by the Germans are mostly Rumanian, with a smattering from Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Germany. they were brought to Holland by the Jewish Agency and the AJDC, major private welfare organizations working Europe, after the Dutch government offered them a temporary haven. the boys and girls were gathered from poverty and famine and from the worst DP camps in Germany.
