- Translated Summary: Letter from Warsaw, expressing gratitude to Rubin Saltzman for extended visit, for material, financial, and moral support, for international solidarity. Engaged in day-to-day life of the community while here, and your talks giving your perspective on Jewish life in Poland were of interest to the [non-Jewish] authorities. Acknowledges specific help in child welfare and repatriation, in the collectives. Also for support of nascent cultural institutions, including Jewish Historical Committee, theater, and Jewish publishing. Facsimile likely was made in preparation for reprinting, perhaps as part of a fundraising effort. A note in red ensures that the signature lines were also photographed. Their original note acknowledged expenditures for Jewish cultural and post war institutions in Lodz, Zamosc, Warsaw, etc. of funds received from the JPFO.
- The material from Poland shows post-war conditions and JPFO fund raising and relief efforts.
The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
