One Thousand Children
While a generation of 1.5 million children perished in the Holocaust, over one thousand children were brought to America in quiet operations designed to avoid attention from isolationist and anti-Semitic forces. These children:
- came from Europe to the United States mainly from 1934 through 1945;
- were aged from fourteen months old through the age of sixteen;
- arrived unaccompanied, leaving their parents behind, and
- were then placed with foster families, schools and facilities across the U.S.
