'45 Aid Society

In 2019, a group of holocaust survivors and their families have re-staged a photo which was taken in Prague shortly after they were liberated from the Terezin concentration camp in Czechoslovakia in 1945.

About "The Boys": World Jewish Relief, formerly known as The Central British Fund for German Jewry (The CBF), rescued and rehabilitated child Holocaust survivors after the liberation of the concentration camps. The Jewish children, known as 'The Boys', although many were girls, were initially brought to England, and later to other hostels around the country, where they were given education, training, language skills and psychological assistance to help them integrate into British society.
