Two sisters who had lost tract of each other for twenty years were reunited as a result of a search made by the Department of Immigrant Aid of the Council of Jewish Women at the request of Lenin’s widow.

The sisters are Mrs. Anna Taube of Tacoma, Wash, and Mrs. Dora Rafeld of Riga, Latvia. Located and informed that her sister was still alive and waiting to hear from her, Mrs. Taube sent a letter to the Immigrant aid office, enclosing a note for her sister in Riga.
