- In Yiddish. Translated Summary: Planning for a JPFO exhibit which would be held May 8 1949; "The Jew in Poland: from Ruins to a New Life" at the ACA Gallery, 63 East 57th Street, New York. Reply April 4, to March 26 radiogram. "Received your telegram of March 26. Unfortunately could not answer promptly as we still did not have a place for the exhibit. Now I can write to you that we have gotten a fine place for an exhibit that will show for a full two weeks, beginning the 9th of May. Once done in NY it will be sent to a lineup of centers in the U.S. and also in Canada." I impatiently await the designs of the maquette (scale model, perhaps of the Warsaw Ghetto monument). If we receive, it can be ready to sell at the exhibit.
- The maquette may be of the Lodz Ghetto based on other correspondence.
- 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.
