Finding Aid
Subcollection: Countries and Regions

The Countries and Regions subcollection of the 1955-1964 Geneva Collection details JDC’s global rescue, relief, and reconstruction programs in 67 locations, arranged as record groups. Formats in these records, such as correspondence, cables, reports, statistical material, lists of names, press releases, meeting minutes and other materials, detail JDC’s ongoing efforts, often in partnership with local and international governmental bodies and non-profit entities, to continue rebuilding European Jewish life in the wake of World War II and to sustain Jewish communities across Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.

JDC’s activities during this period included: massive aid for large-scale emigration, often catalyzed by turbulent events like the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the Suez crisis, also in 1956, and Algeria’s declaration of independence from France in 1962, from Egypt, Hungary, Morocco, Romania, and Tunisia; assisting communities in Australia, France, Israel, and South America in absorbing and supporting hundreds of thousands of new immigrants.

JDC continued in its crucial work with Malben, a wide-ranging social service organization in Israel established in 1949 by JDC and the Israeli government to provide institutional care and social services for handicapped, elderly, and chronically ill populations and to support the development of private and public organizations and resources to support vulnerable populations; supporting yeshivot across the state of Israel; operating extensive education, feeding and nutrition, and medical and public health in Algeria, India, and Iran, among many other locales; establishing Jewish schools, youth groups, feeding programs, resources for maternal and fetal health, and medical programs with partners like Alliance Israélite Universelle (AIU), ORT, and Œuvre de Secours aux Enfants (OSE) for communities across North Africa; and maintaining its vital partnership with the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany (Claims Conference), through which it administered restitution funds from the German government to reinforce and sustain European Jewish life.

Files of key JDC staff in the organization’s overseas offices in Paris (until 1958) and then Geneva (established in July 1958) appear throughout the record groups. Moses W. Beckelman served as director-general of JDC overseas operation until his death in December 1955. He was succeeded by Charles H. Jordan.

Record Group: Germany

The Germany record group contains correspondence, memos, country reports, financial statements, cables, publications and lists of names. JDC had three directors in Germany in this period: Theodore D. Feder, Fred Ziegellaub, and Rudolf Jorysz. JDC returned to Germany in 1945 and ended postwar operations in early 1965, turning all functions over to agencies within the Germany Jewish Community and closing the Frankfurt office. In 1955, many Holocaust survivors were still in Displaced Persons camps, while others had returned from Israel or other countries to which they had emigrated. The last DP Camp, Foehrenwald, closed in February 1957, and JDC assisted the former residents with integration into German towns or emigration to Israel and other countries. Material in this record group also documents how the German Jewish community rebuilt itself during this period, but it also reflects the difficulties they faced in creating communal cohesion in the wake of the Holocaust. In some cities, local governments financed construction of synagogues, while grants from the Claims Conference funded communal structures and cultural and educational programming. Specific issues the community faced include lack of trained Jewish kindergarten teachers and an inability to place Jewish children who can’t live with their parents in suitable Jewish environments.

Record Group: Iran

The Iran record group contains correspondence, reports, and minutes of meetings and conferences covering JDC’s program in Iran. JDC’s involvement in Iran focused mainly on health and education. JDC directly ran or closely oversaw programs for community health, sanitation, and feeding of schoolchildren. The medical aspects of the program included running mother-child health centers, sponsoring medical personnel and health initiatives in Jewish schools, and deep involvement in the operation of the Kanoun Kheir Khah Hospital in Teheran. In the education field, JDC subsidized, monitored, and aided the Jewish educational systems of Alliance Israelite Universelle, Ozar Hatorah, ORT, and a small number of independent schools. JDC also funded kindergartens run by the Jewish Ladies Committee in Teheran, and subsequently by ladies committees in other cities of Iran, and trained and advised teachers and administrators. One challenge JDC faced was the wide gap between the wealthy and the poor and the difficulty of developing a feeling of responsibility on the part of local philanthropists for programs developed or mostly funded by JDC. The JDC country directors for Iran during the years covered by this record group were Abe Loskove (1955-1957), Maurice Lipian (1957-1960), Theodore D. Feder (1960-1962), and Sidney Engel (1963-1964).

Series 12: Subject Matter: Child Care

The Subject Matter: Child Care series includes 17 files and primarily cover kindergarten programs. These kindergartens are referred to in the files as parvareshgahs. The files contain a large number of reports, correspondence, bulletins published by the parvareshgahs, budgetary materials, notes from teachers seminars, and documents relating to teacher training programs. The parvareshgahs were run by the Jewish Ladies Committees in Iran, but JDC provided most of the funding. Toys and other equipment were funded with donations from the British organization Jewish Child’s Day. The parvareshgahs provided services including medical care, feeding, baths, and haircuts.

Educationally, the files document attention given to the social and emotional development of children, play, singing, Hebrew language and Jewish holidays, and scientific knowledge. Another subject covered in the files is summer camps, including a report on the first year of a JDC-Ozar Hatorah camp in Shiraz and correspondence regarding a camp run by the Young Men’s Committee. Most of the reports and correspondence dealing with the parvareshgahs originated with day care consultants Dorothy Beers and Evelyn Peters. Additional material relating to the kindergarten program may be found in the Jewish Organizations: Ladies Committee, Organizations: Jewish Organizations, and Subject Matter: Education series.

Series 13: Subject Matter: Education

The Subject Matter: Education series contains 11 files dealing with all aspects of JDC’s educational program in Iran, including the purchase and construction of schools, teacher training, budgets, books, and the aftermath of the death of Rabbi I.M. Lewi, the head of Ozar Hatorah in Iran, in 1962. Most of the material deals with the Ozar Hatorah and Alliance Israelite Universelle (AIU) networks of Jewish schools. AIU had a long history of presence in Iran and was distinguished by its focus on French language education, whereas Ozar Hatorah had begun working in Iran in the decade prior to this period and focused more on religious education. JDC supported a number of independent Jewish schools, as well as kindergartens run by the Jewish ladies committees of Iran. See the Subject Matter: Child Care series for additional material on the kindergartens. The feeding programs sponsored by JDC at many schools are also addressed in these files. For additional material on this subject, see the Subject Matter: Feeding Program series.

Important educational figures appearing in the series include Stanley Abramovitch, based at JDC’s European headquarters; Israel Szyf at JDC in Iran; Rabbi Yitzhak Meir Lewi, the head of Ozar Hatorah in Iran; Isaac Shalom, Ozar Hatorah’s worldwide leader; and Eugene Weill, AIU’s secretary general.

Record Group: Israel

During this period, one of JDC’s primary initiatives in Israel was the operation of Malben, the network of institutions and services for chronically ill, handicapped, and elderly immigrants. Certain programs, such as the tuberculosis care program, were handed over from Malben to the Israeli government or to municipalities or cut back. The program for the elderly was redirected to focus more on services and reduce the necessity of old age homes. Support for approximately 100 yeshivot, including grants, loans for construction and renovation of buildings, and help procuring inexpensive food was another central JDC program in Israel during this period. JDC also supported publishing projects based on research into religious texts and support for refugee rabbis who found themselves without a means of support in Israel. A third program documented extensively in the files is the aid provided by JDC to the Samaritan community in Nablus, the surviving few hundred members of what had been a religious group numbering in the hundreds of thousands, including general welfare, special holiday grants, and support for education and vocational training. JDC also participated in the creation of the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work at Hebrew University. JDC cooperated with the Jewish Agency in the division of tasks around the world, and the files document financial dealings between the organizations and immigration statistics sent by the Jewish Agency to JDC.

The JDC country directors during this period, who also functioned as the heads of Malben, were Charles Passman (until 1958), Louis D. Horwitz (1958-1962), and Theodore D. Feder (starting in in 1962). Aubrey Mallach served as deputy director of Malben until 1959. The medical directors of Malben during these years were doctors Boris Pliskin (until his death in 1959) and Yitzhak Margulec, while Dr. Aaron Greenbaum was appointed to head the JDC’s yeshivot program in 1955.
