Download PDF for this date

Another team of Joint Distrubution Committee workers left Paris today for Germany to operate in the zone of the American Seventh Army as liaison officers between the military authorities and the stateless Jews still held in camps.

At present the J.D.C. has twenty-seven representatives warking in this capacity in Germany under the UNRRA. They maintain contact between displaced Jews and U.S, military officials, dispense medical assistance and help in tracing relatives among the surviving Jews in the camps.
