They Survived: Sample Case Histories of Victims of American Bombs in Laos

Washington, DC: Committee of Responsibility, Inc. Presumed first edition/first printing. Wraps. 12 p. Includes illustrations. The Committee of Responsibility was a private, nonprofit organization of doctores and other concerned citizens who from 1967 brought war=burned and war-injured Vietnamese children to the U.S. for medical care not available in Vietnam. Fred Branfman had some association with this group. Herbert Needleman was Chariman of the Board. From Wikipedia: "While an associate professor at Temple University's School of Medicine, Needleman was the chairman of the Committee of Responsibility (COR), throughout its existence between 1966 and 1974. COR, which sought to help civilians injured in the Vietnam War, was composed of medical personnel, scientists, clergymen, and citizens concerned about American involvement. In its efforts to assist injured Vietnamese children shelters were set up in Berkeley, California and Boston, Massachusetts, both called Vietnam House, and another in Saigon, where paraplegic children could be cared for and rehabilitated in their own country." Condition: Good. Cover has some wear and soiling.
