Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
Orphaned sisters Hela, 11, and Ester Feld, 14, beam with joy as they start on the first stage of their journey from an IRO administered center at Aglasterhansen, Germany, to their new home in Toronto, Canada. The Polish born Jewish orphans fled with their parents to Russia when the Germans invaded Warsaw. The parents died in 1942. The children are en route to the home of a Mrs. Rotman of 228 Palmerston Avenue, Toronto. (AP Wirephoto)
