This piece explores the necessity of personal rehabilitation to aid European Jewish children. The author highlights how European Jewish children in the light of the trauma they experienced needed love, affection and acceptance and the only way this could be provided was through personal contact with other adults and children. Efforts to create linkages with American families and European children were deemed to be successful and especially beneficial to the children. The piece concludes by affirming that surviving Jewish children should be offered all the benefits of knowledge and resources that agencies can provide to them.
