OPENING OF THE EMERGENCY SHELTER ‘PRINS MAURITSLAAN’
To provide a first roof for the returning war victims emergency shelters were established all over Den Haag. To ensure they could have kosher food, a special shelter for the more orthodox Jews was organised on the Prins Mauritslaan 94. On September 1st 1945 the ‘Gemeentelijke dienst Noodtehuizen Gemeente Den Haag’, the municipal service for emergency shelters, formally opened the building. This service was also charged with the care for the returnees. It organised the journey back, did medical check-ups, political background checks and registration.
