<p>A group of Polish Jewish children (known as the "<a href="/narrative/11006/en">Tehran Children</a>"), who arrived in Palestine via Iran, at the Mikveh Israel agricultural village. Palestine, February or March 1943.</p>



From 1933 to fall 1941 Nazi Germany pursued an aggressive policy of forced emigration for the Reich's Jews.

The search for refuge frames both the years before the Holocaust and its aftermath.
