SG Lecture: The Missing Children: Tracing Children after World War

At the end of the war, the Allies discovered tens of thousands of unaccompanied children in liberated Europe. Who were they, to whom did they belong and who would help them?

This lecture explains the creation of the International Tracing Service’s Child Search Branch and examines cases of children whose fates were decided by the cooperation and competition of different national, military, and international humanitarian organisations.
