Poland’s Jewish Flood Victims Obtain Relief Funds from B’nai B’rith

Download PDF for this date

The B’nai B’rith Emergency Relief Fund has been tapped for the second time this year when a substantial sum of money was sent to Poland for the direct relief of Jewish victims of the recent flood disasters in that country.

Many Jewish lives were lost, property damaged, and men, women, and children left homeless in Poland when the raging Vistula overflowed its banks. President Alfred M. Cohen directed that the relief money be sent to the president of B’nai B’rith’s Polish District Grand Lodge, which is actively aiding in the relief and reconstruction work.
