Abstract:

Maps the activities of the OSE, especially its establishment of children's homes in France, between 1938-45. Its history sheds light on the relentless progress of Nazi persecution throughout France. Month by month, year by year, from Montmorency to the Creuse and the Italian occupation zone, the homes changed their locations and status. Argues that the successful rescue of thousands of Jewish children during the Shoah was the result of the OSE's decision to open children's homes already in 1938 for refugee children from Germany and Austria. The OSE was then prompt in responding to the political situation and, from 1940 on, opened more than ten homes in the South of France. It removed many children from French internment camps between 1941-42, but when OSE leaders realized that the children were in danger, they changed tactics. In 1943 the assocation went underground, closing its children's homes and providing a network of hiding places for the children. Concludes that, over the years, thousands of children passed through OSE homes, but these represented only one stage in the overall rescue strategy of the welfare organization.
