    Young children in an OSE/JDC children's home wash up and brush their teeth.
    Young children in an OSE/JDC children's home wash up and brush their teeth.

The original caption reads "Its Fun to be Clean:  These French Jewish children who were hidden for years in caves and forests discover that running water and clean individual towels can be fun. These little ones who can scarcely remember home and family are now learning what decent living is like in a Joint Distribution Committee supported children's home near Paris.  Some 70,000 children receive J.D.C aid.  20,000 of them, for the most part orphans, are being cared for in 244 institutions which stretch from Brussels to Bucharest, from Paris to Prague.  In France alone there are 43 J.D.C. orphanages".
