‘Without a home again’: Jewish orphanage evacuates 300 children in Ukraine amid Russia invasion

Written by on March 10, 2022

On an evening two weeks in the past in southwest Ukraine, youngsters inside a Jewish orphanage felt the bottom shake and watched lights eerily flicker. 

Bombs had been falling only a mile from their residence, shattering their protected world and sending them fleeing into the darkness. 

The kids, most of their pajamas and with out sneakers, rushed out of the orphanage and squeezed onto buses to make their approach to the Moldova border because the Russian army launched its invasion of Ukraine. The journey, which ultimately took the youngsters to Romania, left them in tears and confusion: The place would they name residence now?
