Description

Brown envelope addressed to "Mr. A. Rabin" in purple pencil. Includes censor tape and stamp.

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.

An envelope from the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in Bavaria (hand stamp on reverse), via the American Joint Distribution Committee, to Sydney, Australia, censored.
