Detailed Description of the Records
Subcollection:
Countries and Regions

Extent: 782 files
The Countries and Regions subcollection details JDC’s rescue, relief, and reconstruction programs and operations in 64 countries and regions from 1955-1964. In addition to documenting the global scope of JDC’s humanitarian initiatives, these files contain extensive reports from JDC country directors and other staff, memos, correspondence, and other documentation that describe the political, cultural, and socioeconomic developments in these locations.

JDC’s aid efforts in this period include: full-scale assistance to Jewish communities in Algeria, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia, including funding for hospitals, schools, and public health resources; support to the French Jewish community in its efforts to absorb waves of immigrants from North Africa fleeing political instability; operation of loan institutions in Australia, Europe, Israel, and South America, to enable Jewish refugees to reestablish themselves in their new places of residence; and the start of its partnership with the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany, wherein JDC began to direct communal restitution funds from the German government to support and sustain Nazi victims, primarily in Europe, and to reconstruct European Jewish institutions and infrastructure, among others.

In Israel, JDC continued its oversight and funding of MALBEN, an extensive network of institutions and social services formed in partnership with the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency in 1949 to address the needs of handicapped, elderly, and chronically ill populations. In 1953, the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work, named for a JDC founder and long-time chairman, was founded at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem with a mandate to develop Israel’s social welfare system at all levels by educating professionals and developing appropriate policies and systems to sustain diverse populations. In 1951-1952, JDC financed Operation Ezra and Nehemiah, a series of airlifts from Baghdad during which most of the 2,800-year-old Iraqi Jewish community–some 130,000 people–were brought to Israel.

Please note that the names of some of the localities reflect the contemporary usage when these records were created.
