      That must have been a very scary time, the children could not have understood what was going on. I always thought it was wonderful how people took them in and all worked together so well.

      Remarkable image, just remarkable.

      Made me wonder if these children survived the war....

      Yes I like to think they were going into kind families who would look after them.
