Recha Freier

Recha Freier established Youth Aliya, the movement to bring Jewish children from Germany to Palestine, enabling thousands to escape Nazi persecution and build new lives in pre-State Israel. It was not until the end of her life that she received formal recognition for the visionary initiative that saved so many Jewish children.

Institution: Serem Freier.
