Description

Tan half sheet titled, "Fédération des Communautes Juives en Yougoslavie" with illustration of the Mogen David. Includes a typewritten note addressed to the American Joint Distribution Committee.

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 note is from the American Joint Distribution Committee at Belgrade asking for letters to be forwarded to Spain through Paris.
