Happy Purim!

1938 radio broadcast by JDC Vice Chairman Edward Warburg appealed for aid for persecuted Jews of Europe.

This Purim broadcast, aired March 17, 1938 on CBS radio in New York, is just a sampling of JDC Archives’ 1,100 audio recordings. JDC Vice Chairman Edward Warburg appeals for aid for the persecuted Jews of Europe, whose lives were threatened much like Jews in the time of Queen Esther.
