Description

Green envelope with handwritten address to the Jewish Welfare Society with "For A.J. Isakoff" written at bottom. Includes censor sticker on back flap.

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 envelope was from the Jewish Information Service, Sub UNRRA Team 108, munich with censor labels and large AJDC double circle hand stamps. This envelope included the recipient's address from a field worker at APO 757 (Munich). This would have been carried under cover to the Welfare society.
