KIRKUS REVIEW

Under a two-year contract as Special Consultant to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the author has had rarely equalled opportunities to visit and become acquainted with refugee camps in Europe and the Middle East -- the existing conditions, efforts towards rehabilitation, tragic problems facing so many young and old from all over the world. With the aid of numerous personally taken photographs, his verbal descriptions bring with startling clarity to the vaguely aware reader a shocking picture of a growing problem which has been sporadically alleviated and which needs constant attention and aid in addition to those organizations which are engaged in the endeavor to combat undeserved misery in so many fellow human beings. Above all, he emphasizes the paramount importance of helping refugee children, for it is largely they who have the moral strength, physical vitality, and optimistic curiosity which will enable them to become active and productive members of normal society. So, ends the author, ""Bring forth the children"".
