Edited by Eiko Uto and her colleague “Records of the Polish Childen Rescue Project”

Full story of the reception and rescue of 765 Polish Siberian Children.
Siberian Children lost their way during the civil war that followed World War I and the Russian Revolution.
Japan was suffering from the post-war depression caused by the rice riots, but a rescue project was operated mainly by the Japanese Red Cross.
At the time, the Taisho Democracy was also influential and there was a momentum to help the needy, and the circle of support, including donations, expanded.
This book is a rediscovery of history, reprinting the entirety of the “Poland Jido-Kankei Nisshi”, a detailed diary of the project left behind by the JRC, and illuminating the valuable humanitarian assistance provided by the Japanese people through it.
