Rehabilitating the child: the Buchenwald Boys in post-war France

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will examine the rehabilitation efforts that surrounded a group of 500 teenage Holocaust survivors after their arrival in France in June 1945. It will explore how the Buchenwald Boys were placed in an overcrowded orphanage, where tensions bubbled to the surface between non-compliant teenage survivors and adult professionals committed to their recovery.
