Short Description
The International Tracing Service used photographs like this to trace lost children after the war.
Text Description

After the war, millions of people were displaced, including large numbers of children. This photograph shows an anonymous young boy found alone in Berlin after the war. The International Tracing Service (ITS) made huge efforts to find children lost or stolen during the Holocaust, and also to identify foundlings and reunite them with their families where possible.
