Record groups within the subcollection are organized alphabetically by country or regional name. When the amount of material for each country or region warrants further classification, the record group may be broken down into series.
The materials depict JDC's extensive relief efforts to alleviate suffering and rebuild devastated European Jewish communities in the wake of World War I. Detailed field reports describe prevailing political, social, and economic conditions in these areas, with considerable space devoted to Brest Litowsk, Bialystok, Pinsk, Rovno, and Vilna.
