In 1940s/50s how did refugees earn US citizenship?

* Does the country of origin (Poland here) make a difference? * How does a minor's status affect the process? * What were the conditions (having lived in the US for x years, etc?) **at that time** - it is easy to find the rules today, but were they the same during WW2 with the many European refugees? * Does it matter if the parents are alive or supposed dead? * Does it make a difference if a minor is adopted by US citizens? There are plenty of examples for refugees becoming permanent US residents and citizens, but I could not find the exact process at that time for an unaccompanied minor.
