Gunter Nitsch's family was among the first ever recipients of the original “care package,” a generic term now but which originated with the humanitarian organization CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere), formed in 1945. So now he, and other World War II refugees who received care packages as children, are paying it forward by sending letters and other special items to a Syrian refugee child of around the same age they were when they were displaced.
