    Event History
    The Pouponniere in Limoges opened in late 1940 by the Assistance Medicale aux Enfants de Refugies (Medical Aid for Refugees' Children), with financial help from the Joint Distribution Committee. It was designed for children ages 0-6, though most of the children were under three. In March 1942, the home was transferred to the auspises of OSE and was an annex to a school for nursing. The home closed in 1943.
