Martin Hecht holding a chalked sign with his name. All of the children in the UNRRA children's home in Indersdorf, Germany were photographed in an attempt to locate relatives.
Martin carried stones in his pockets during the flight from Munich to Southampton, hoping that he could drop them onto Germany from above. This flight, leaving on October 31, 1945, carried a group of fifty Jewish youths.
