J.D.C. Warsaw Office Still Active; Operated Throughout Siege

Download PDF for this date

The Joint Distribution Committee office in Warsaw functioned throughout the German siege and is now operating a soup kitchen, child care and medical aid, according to a cable received by the J.D.C. from its European director, Morris C. Troper, in Paris, who quoted “fairly reliable information.”

The assistance was organized by Guzik and I. Neustadt, J.D.C. representatives in Warsaw, according to the cable. The J.D.C. here said that the money used apparently consisted of funds made available immediately before and during the first two days of the siege.

The cable added that Isaac Giterman, head of the J.D.C. office in Warsaw, who is operating a similar assistance program in Wilno, was seeking permission to organize aid in Russian occupied cities.
