This list contains the names and addresses of donors/senders in
Palestine who sent parcels to Jews in Poland through the JOINT=E2=80=99s (J=
office in Jerusalem and the names of the recipients of the parcels.
The document is found in the Archives of the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC).

If you locate the name of a donor in this database, when you click on
the DETAILS button, you will see a description of the database and at
the very bottom, a link for additional information. This link takes
you to the JDC website, to their search result page for that name.
Clicking on the "+" on the list of Remitter or Beneficiary will show
you the name of the recipient, as well as, the community they lived in
at that time in Poland. Further down on their page is a link to a PDF
- "View Document" which opens up the page where the name you are
searching is mentioned.

We take this opportunity to thank the JDC for sharing this database
with us and we look forward to additional projects of cooperation.
