Description

Circular cloth shoulder patch with two clasped hands before a light blue Star of David encircled by the name of the organization, ”Judische Winterhilfe Berline”.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The Judische Winterhilfe was established in 1935 by the Reichsvertretung to aid unemployed and needy Jews. Jews were excluded from receiving general assistance during winter months by the Nuremberg laws, and thus set up their own organization to help with food, medicine and shelter even as they were pressured to leave Germany. For as long as the organization survived, it proved a model charity, opening soup kitchens, orphanages, etc. from funds provided by means of donations.
