PINSKER OR­PHANS

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment -

In 1924 a group of 19 or­phans, and in 1926 a fur­ther group of 34, were brought out to London for adop­tion, by the Pinsker Or­phans Re­lief Fund of London. They were res­cued from the mul­ti­ple hor­rors fac­ing Jews in the Pale of Set­tle­ment.

I am com­pil­ing a book on the three Pinsk or­phan­ages and I ap­peal to the de­scen­dants of these 53 Pinsk or­phans to make con­tact with me and share the life sto­ries of their par­ents or grand­par­ents.

The book will also in­clude 135 let­ters, in He­brew and Yid­dish with trans­la­tions, from the chil­dren and teach­ers of the or­phan­ages. David Solly San­dler sed­sand@iinet.net.au
