Life Reborn in the Displaced Persons Camps (1945-51): An Untold Story of Courage

By Theodore Comet

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2000

Little research has been done on the post-Holocaust period, and so the moral courage of the 300,000 Jewish Displaced Persons is a story yet untold. In just a few months, the survivors took control of their lives, creating governing committees that transformed the Displaced Persons camps into cultural centers, with schools, newspapers, theater, musical troupes, and athletic teams. They affirmed "Forever Again" to rebirth and renewal. As Jewish communal professionals, we must strive to have Holocaust-related events include the inspiring tales of "Life Reborn. "
