Emma Lazarus Division
- Letter from the office, probably by Gedaliah Sandler. Translated Summary: We just received your first letter from Paris. Called the whole staff together and read it aloud. We implore you to keep your promise and write more often with your impressions of our brothers and sisters in Europe. It means a lot for our current work, and especially for the "Million-Dollar Campaign for the Rehabilitation of European Jews 1946-1947." Work in the office going well. Describes instructions to the Emma Lazarus Division for children's clothing drive and preparation of materials for the Million-Dollar campaign. Personal greetings.
- 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.
