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.
