The Story of the Selvino Children

Journey to the Promised Land

By Aharon Megged

Contributions by: Vivian Eden

Fundamentally a documentary, Selvino's Children describes the story of the rehabilitation of 800 Jewish children, Holocaust survivors, in the first few years after the Second Word War in a small town near Milano-Selvino. There, Jewish-Palestinian soldiers, with the help of committed and well-wishing Italians, built an educational establishment that rehabilitated these children and prepared them for life in Israel. The book gives a very interesting account of the children's elaborate journey before, during and after Selvino.
