Vida Kaufman (at right) worked with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) after the war to provide aid to Jewish survivors. She supervised the nurseries and kindergartens that were established to meet the post-war baby boom in the Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp. She also participated in the development of a school system for survivors and their children which served youth from nursery through high school.
