Description

Typewritten letter on "Centrala Evreilor din România" stationery. Includes signatures in blue and green.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A typed document on "Jewish Center of Romania" letterhead, to the Tarnava-Mare Office of Relief and signed by three Jewish doctors. Concerns methods for individuals to send food, medicines and clothing to Jewish deportees from the Transnistria region of Romania. Between 280,000 to 380,000 Jews were murdered in Romania and the war zones of Bessarabia, Bukovina and Transnistria. "Deportation" was a euphemism, as part of the process involved killing many Jews before deporting the rest in the "Trains of Death" (in reality long exhausting marches on foot) to the East.
