- In Yiddish, 2 pages. Letter from Warsaw, Hotel Polonie. Translated Summary: Describes arriving in Warsaw, and then waiting to meet with general secretary (of the Central Committee of Jews in Poland; CKŻP, Centralny Komitet Żydów w Polsce) Pawel Zelicki (Zelitsky), who had been called in to see the Prime Minister. When Pawel Zelicki returned, he and Adolf Berman told the assembled members news of a terrible pogrom in Kielce. Berman could not finish his report. They did not know how many were dead, and how many hurt. "The mob was still rampaging" even as they tried to digest the news...
- The Kielce pogrom took place on July 4, 1946.
- 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.
