Questa raccolta contiene i nomi di circa 800 bambini che scapparono dalla Polonia nel 1939 e giunsero infine in Israele nel 1943.

In 1939, a group of people escaped Poland and fled to Russia. Then in 1940, many of these Polish refugees were expelled to Siberia. They were eventually given amnesty and began to move toward the Asian territories. These people suffered cold, hunger, disease, and many hardships along the way. Many children lost family members. This collection contains the names of about 800 children who arrived in Israel in 1943. Other information included are their age, parents' names, and place of birth.
