June 24, 1949:
An exhibition showing the art of the children of Palestine opens tomorrow (June 25) at the Brooklyn Museum and will be current through September fifth.
The work presented has been collected and is sponsored by Children of Palestine, Inc., a national committee initiated and led by Christians to cooperate with their Jewish friends in the rescue and rehabilitation of Jewish children in Palestine. The thirty-five paintings, drawings and prints done by the children in Palestine represent this organization’s splendid efforts in the re-orientation of refugee children.
