Abstract

This article explores the activities of the United States Committee for the Care of European Children (USCOM), a non-sectarian rescue organization that operated throughout World War II. USCOM managed to bring to the US a total of approximately 1,300 children—both Jewish and non-Jewish—in two separate operations: the first from Britain in 1940, and the second from concentration camps in southern France between 1941 and 1944. In its effort to find suitable host families for the children in the United States, the committee cooperated mainly with Jewish organizations.
