  • Growing Up

Children arrived at the orphanages in different ways. Near East Relief workers searched for homeless children on the streets and brought them to the orphanages. Some children had been traveling for their entire lives and had no memories of their families, or even of their own names. Some adult deportees left their children by the roadside in hope that the children would be rescued. Many children waited at orphanage gates until there was space for them inside.
