International Shipping: Add $20.
The album of Zippy Orlin features illustrative and often compelling scenes depicting the tentative efforts of the survivors to recover and resume normal lives after the horrors of the Holocaust. The photographs are organized by theme and reveal all aspects of everyday life, from leisure, education, and work, to weddings and the care of the many orphans. As a volunteer, Zippy Orlin was primarily responsible for the very youngest children. It was the goal of the camp administration and the counselors for those children to have faith and look forward to a different, better future.
More than anything else in the world, the camp population longed to immigrate to Israel, the nascent Jewish state. In addition to portraying life in the DP camp, the album also includes pictures of the few transports of the DPs authorized by the Allies in 1947, as well as a remarkable series of photos relating to the Exodus 47 affair, depicting the forced disembarkation and the internment of the Exodus passengers.
Accompanying the extraordinary photos, Jewish Displaced Persons in Camp Bergen-Belsen 1945â€“1950 includes Zippyâ€™s own fascinating, personal accounts of what it was like to live and work in Camp Bergen-Belsen as well as interviews with her relatives and contributions by leading researchers and writers who have written articles about displaced persons from 1945-1950 and the DP camp at Bergen-Belsen.
