The mixing up of babies by institutions might not be all that rare. My mother had black hair and green eyes when I was born, and may have not looked particularly Jewish. In the same maternity ward, there was a Mrs. Johnson, was was not Jewish, but apparently looked more Jewish than my mother did. The Johnson baby and I were both temporarily removed from our mothers, and when the nurses returned us, I was given to Mrs. Johnson, whom the nurses though was Mrs. Nathanson, and the Johnson baby was given to my mother.  Fortunately, our mothers realized that that had the wrong babies from the names on the identification bracelets.
