Problems Encountered in Placements and Adjustment of Refugee Children as Seen in the Records of the Catholic Home Bureau, New York
Background of the Study. Nearly four years have passed since the war in Europe came to an end. As we look about us, we see that many social problems, left in its wake, remain unsolved. Peace is far from a realization. As a matter of fact, the distant thunder of a third world catastrophe pounds our eardrums, shattering the much longed for feeling of peace and security. As long as many of these war-wrought questions remain unsolved, our future safety and happiness is threatened. Of great concern is the problem of hundreds of thousands of uprooted, homeless, broken families who are unrepatriable as a result of the recent war. By the end of 1946, there were more than 1,200,000 displaced persons, generally speaking, refugees, in the American, British and French Zones of Germany and Austria. These were cared for by United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, or by army encampments. Many other thousands are scattered in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, Switzerland and Spain.
