After the war, Alice Goldberger cared for 24 refugee children at Lingfield House on the Weir Courtney Estate in England. She attempted to create a typical childhood for this group of young survivors of the Holocaust. Artwork created by the children reflects the happier times they encountered on the estate, with pets, sports, games, and other activities. She cared for the children from 1945 until 1957.
