Members of the "Ichud" pioneering training commune (hachshara) touring the ruins of Pompeii. With them are Jewish soldiers of the British army base in Picciola. Photographed in August 1945.
In the hachshara at Picciola were young Holocaust survivors, several of whom were relatives of soldiers from Mandate Palestine serving in the British army, plus other young Jews who were "adopted" by these soldiers. The soldiers, in the RAOC units 514 and 555, took care of their charges' needs, including clothing (for example, articles of military uniforms). Close
