Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--December 2014

Figure 1.--Jews fleeing the NAZIs attempted to enter Switzerland. This was very difficult across the closely wached German border, much of it the Lake Constance (Bodensee). The Lack of assistance from Germans made this virtually impossible. Quite a number of Jews trapped in France were able to cross the French-Swiss border. Tragically, the Swiss turned some refugee Jews over to the NAZIs. They did not turn over their own small Jewish population, but did turn over quite a number of foreign Jews. Here is a Jewish boy who managed to survive the War in France and than aided by sympathetic French people who managed to get him to Switzerland. One look at the intensity on this boy's face and you can tell him how important food is to him. The press caption read, "This Jewish refugee youngster who crossed the Alps from France into Switzerland and thus escaped the Nazis who had occupied the country [France], receives the best welcome of all--food and lodging from the American Jewish Joint Ditribution Committee. Shortly afterwards, he was sent to a children's home supported by the JDC." The photograph was dated November 14, 1945. The editor who wrote the caption apparently did not realize that most Jews in France were actually rounded jup and arrested by French authorities acting on their own or with very little pressure from the Germans.

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let us know if you have any question about this HBC feature.
