A group of former Auschwitz inmates in West Germany is seeking to help Auschwitz survivors who live in Poland. The Friends of Former Auschwitz Inmates has issued a call for immediate help to the needy and offered to transfer packages and contributions directly to the survivors and their families in Poland. The group says it has the addresses of thousands of needy people in Poland who suffered under the Nazi occupation, among them many Jews. The West German public has been particularly responsive to appeals from many organizations to send food parcels and clothing to Poland.
