Detailed Description: 

Printed for the Holocaust refugees who partook in the Daf Yomi by the Va'ad Hazzalah. The Va’ad Hazzalah, a group organized by Rabbi Eliezer Silver and the American Rabbinate to rescue survivors and provide sustenance until their resettlement. Rabbi Silver established the group when the refugee yeshiva pupils reached Vilna in 1939–40 following the Nazi invasion of Poland. During the ensuing years he applied the same body to rescuing European rabbis, scholars, and students. In 1946, Rabbi Silver visited Europe and Erez Israel as an official representative of the United States government to assist the war refugees. The [3] ff. preceding title are dedications by the Va'ad's committee director R. Nathan Baruch followed by a calendar for Daf Yomi use.
