In Ukraine, Jewish orphanage evacuates 300 children amid Russian invasion

One night two weeks ago in southwestern Ukraine, children inside a Jewish orphanage felt the ground shake and saw lights flashing strangely.

Bombs were falling just a mile from their home, shattering their safe world and sending them fleeing into darkness.

The children, most in pajamas and without shoes, rushed out of the orphanage and crowded onto buses for the Moldovan border as the Russian army launched its invasion of Ukraine. The trip, which ultimately took the children to Romania, left them in tears and confusion: Where would they call home now?
