Buchenwald Survivors

A United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration worker is calling off names as this six year-old orphan waits for his name. He is in a group of 350 orphans scheduled for departure to Switzerland. The children, five to eighteen years old, are all orphans of the war. Some of them have been at the Buchenwald camp for as long as six years.
