In connection with the 25th anniversary of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, the newspaper L’Ordre publishes an article captioned, “Touching Activities of Human Solidarity–the Joint Distribution Committee.” It reviews the history of the J.D.C. briefly and emphasizes that during its 25 years the organization raised and expended for relief in Europe more than $100,000,000.

“It can be said that the J.D.C. is everywhere where immediate relief is necessary,” the article said, adding: “The J.D.C.’s work of yesterday as well as of today and its very useful activities every day are the best example of human solidarity, meriting the highest praise.”
