Mrs. Joseph Marks and Mrs. Eugene Smaler, chapter Youth Aliyah chairmen, will stress this project at the meeting. Mrs. Marks relates that Youth Aliyah is "Mother, Teacher and Friend." Founded in 1934, Youth Aliyah was headed during her lifetime by Henrietta Szold, founder of Hadassah, who gave the movement its unique humanitarian character. Begun back in the 1930's as a desperate emergency measure to rescue Jewish children from the Nazi dragnet, it never ceased working during World War II. during war years, right through the first tense years of Israel's struggle for independence. It is still seeking out. defending from harm, and bringing home to their people, the thousands of threatened Jewish children of the world. More than 90.000 are already home. Thousands more are waiting at the gates of Israel. For them, special facilities, special education, and physical care must be provided. It is in Hadassah's newest project of "Ann Frank Havens" that Hadassah plans to absorb the children under twelve. Eight such Havens are already completed, and plans for four more are in the 1960 future.
