A report of intellectual starvation in countries scourged by Nazi occupation. Schools are now lost in the rubble. Children gather knowledge of the world from the black markets and refuse dumps, roving in gangs through the litter of a civilization. From mute faces, eyes stare hungrily, marking the desolation of mind as well as body. Text books, writing materials, research equipment and a thousand other tools of knowledge are needed to break apathy and hostility, and to open young minds to the promise of a more peaceful world.
