- Translated Summary: Starting with this issue of "Haym un Dertsiung" [Haim Un Dertziung] we are establishing a special page for and about women. Women's accomplishments and problems will be highlighted. The goal is to acknowledge women as equal members in society and in the struggle (but also to elevate the readers' cultural level, and activate them). Discusses International Women's Day, lauds the equal legal status of women in the Soviet Union, and their contributions to the War effort there. The center box is a profile of Rose Benedick, a member the Hungarian section of the I.W.O. It describes her contributions to the War effort, including working at a bomb factory, driving other workers to and from the factory, teaching courses in first aid, in knitting, giving talks on Hungarian unity, and converting her home into a first aid station, in the event that Gary, Indiana, where she lives, is ever bombed.
- Journal is also spelled "Haim un Dertsiung", and is the continuation of "Proletarishe Dertsiung."
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.
