This summer Plast Ukrainian Scouting Association is holding an international jamboree near Mittenwald, Germany exactly 50 years since it held its first jamboree outside Ukraine near this city.
The occasion in 1947 was the celebration of the 35th anniversary of Plast. Between 1945 and 1948 Plast functioned in approximately 80 Displaced Persons (DP) camps in post-World War II Germany. It attracted some 4,800 members with its patriotic scouting program. The goal of the 1947 jamboree was to bring Plast youth together before the great exodus from the DP camps to North and South America, Australia and other parts of Europe that ensued between 1948 and 1952.
