This index is a combination of two lists found in the International Tracing Service (126.96.36.199 folder 190) of children who were airlifted from the Czech Republic to England in August of 1945. One of the lists only includes name and date of birth. The other list includes name, date and place of birth, and nationality. This second list often contains an original entry and a final entries for this information. Children often changed their names and dates of birth as they arrived in England. The general pattern was to make themselves younger (presumably their real age) --survival in camps/ghettos was better if they claimed to be older.
