Description
Memoirs and office files, relating to UNRRA and IRO relief work for displaced children in Austria at the end of World War II.
Background
Aleta Brownlee began her employment with the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration as a Welfare Specialist on the Yugoslavian Mission in 1945. Later that year she was transferred to Vienna and promoted to Director of Child Welfare in Austria. In that position, both with UNRRA and with the International Refugee Organization (which superceded UNRRA in 1947), she worked with displaced children. The Child Welfare Agency had the responsibility of locating and reestablishing, either through repatriation or resettlement, children who had been moved from their homelands during the war. Ms. Brownlee continued this work until 1950 when the International Refugee Organization ceased its activities.
