Back
Subcollection:
Organizations

Extent: 678 files
The Organizations subcollection details JDC’s partnerships with
governmental and non-governmental organizations, including several United
Nations agencies such as the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration
(UNRRA); Jewish and non-sectarian
philanthropic agencies; and U.S. and foreign governmental agencies
during the years 1945-1954.
Arrangement
The Organizations subcollection is organized into five record groups:

U.S. Government


Foreign Governments


Intergovernmental


Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)


Companies

Within each record group, files are arranged alphabetically by the organization’s name. Those organizations for which there are at least three files are categorized in series within the record groups, with each series titled according to the organization’s name. These series are listed first in alphabetical order. All of the files which appear after these series reflect organizations which have fewer than three files and therefore are not assigned to a series.
