- Letter from Henri Slovès IKUF/YKUF to Rubin Saltzman and the U.S. branch of IKUF/YKUF. Translated Summary: Slovès strongly protests "your relationship to the central directorate of the kultur farband," specifically, the lack of communication following the Congress and continuing now, even after they have an administrative structure in place. Expresses his bitterness and disappointment. Repeats complaint of earlier letters, that the U.S. delegation has promised to send $1500 a year. They have been counting on that promised money. In particular, Slovès continues, the matter of the Congress Bulletin is a scandal. Three months have passed since the 1000 copies were sent. When Saltzman received them he said that in two or three weeks they would begin to distribute them and a meaningful amount of money would be sent. A recent telegram has gone unanswered. The work and the organization are in jeaopardy.
- One of a number of letters in Yiddish from Paris, New York, and Poland pertaining to the founding of YKUF (IKUF) as an organization.
- 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.
