Wat gebeurt er met de Joodse oorlogspleegkinderen? Nogmaals: Redt de Jod - " What Happens to the Jewish Wartime Foster Children? Once Again: Save the Jew" - by Jacob Jetses KALMA, published by Joachimsthal's Boekhandel, The Hague 1946 - First edition. Dutch.
An important publication concerning the welfare of Jewish children from religious families who were orphaned during World War II. After statements made by Dutch Minister of Justice Mrs. Lakerkar regarding the case of Jewish orphans, in which she did not distinguish between children from religious families and non-religious families, and even proposed placing Jewish children in non-Jewish institutions, and following an article on the subject published in the "Monthly Magazine for Mental Health" in October 1946, the author deemed it appropriate to publish the booklet before us dealing with the complex issue of Jewish wartime orphans in the Netherlands. The booklet addresses ways of treating the trauma the children experienced during the war, the issue of children from religious families who were placed in non-religious foster families, the responsibility of the Netherlands as a state for the fate of Jewish children within its borders, and an explicit appeal to transfer authority over Jewish children to the "Jewish Committee" of the Child Welfare Fund, and more. The author argues that it is unacceptable for children who came from an orthodox traditional Jewish upbringing to be entrusted to families that do not have such a background, writing: "We think it is wrong that a number of non-Jewish Dutch people, who certainly are not all experts on Jewish issues, received the right to determine the fate of the Jewish orphans". He also elaborates on the question of authority - who has the authority to decide the fate of these children, and is it even the Dutch government's role when there are so many capable Jewish organizations that could handle the matter efficiently and provide an effective solution suited to the religious character of the families the orphans came from.
