Detail Description

Printed in Tel Aviv for the use of Holocaust survivors in the American liberation camps in Germany. During the Holocaust, European Jewry was pushed to the brink of annihilation by Nazi Germany. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee was the main financial benefactor towards Jewish emigration from Europe and rescue attempts of Jews from Nazi-controlled territories. From the outbreak of World War II through 1944, American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee made it possible for more than 81,000 Jews to emigrate out of Nazi-occupied Europe to safety. JDC also smuggled aid to Jewish prisoners in labor camps and helped finance the Polish Jewish underground in preparations for the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto revolt. In addition, JDC was a major channel keeping American Jewish leaders informed—often in detail—about the holocaust.
