Description

Handwritten letter on white paper addressed to the Jewish Joing, Geneva from A. Ben-Moshe.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: In addition to its various humanitarian missions, the American Joint Distribution Committee acted as a mail carrier not only for its field workers, but also for refugees, displaced persons and other Jews in need. For the most part, this service was provided through its Paris office. Mail would be gathered at other offices and sent by courier to Paris whence it would then be sent abroad either by messenger or under cover to a local Jewish agency for distribution. This is an example of a letter sent to the AJDC in Switzerland, which was then passed on by the service.
