Uprooting Jewish Communities - December 4, 1939 (Theme: Warsaw Ghetto)

 

"Masses of exiles stream daily to the unfortunate capital city, downtrodden refugees who were uprooted one fine morning from the town of their birth.  One's heart bleeds at the sight of these despairing people.  Because of the extent of the catastrophe, one cannot even think about giving constructive aid. The only institution which is extending temporary relief, beggarly handouts that are only enough for a day at a time, is the Joint office at 13 Leszno Street." 

*--The Joint Distribution Committee was a Jewish charitable organization whose European office worked to improve the conditions of the Jews under Nazi occupation.
