JDC Jerusalem Collection from Post-World War II Now Available Online #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) has placed its
Jerusalem 1944-1952 collection online. The collection focuses on the JDC's
relief operations in Israel, the middle east and Balkans. The JDC Middle
East office provided assistance to communities and individuals from
Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and more.

The records include information on partnerships JDC had with Jewish
commuiti4es worldwide, sending essential supplies to recipients in then
Palestine, and detainees in British internment camps on Cyprus, and food
packages to European survivors. This included Operation Magic Carpet, which
brought nearly 50,000 Jews >from Yemen, Aden, Djibouti and Asmara to Israel
by airlifts form 1948-1950. The records include English language flight
passenger lists.

Other records in the Jerusalem collection include:
. Lists of Jews found in Vilna, Rovno and Kiev, the first recipients of
post-war supplies in early 1945;
. Reports, correspondence, and appeals for help >from Jewish communities in
Muslim countries, which shed light on conditions in remote areas;
. Various correspondence regarding Cyprus, concert programs in Cyprus,
responsa written by Israel's chief rabbis on religious observance during
Operation Magic Carpet; and more.

To actually get to the records one has to "drill down" into their website-it
takes several clicks to finally get to the records. Unfortunately, the
finding aid for this series is not yet available but will be soon.
For example:
1.Go to the website above: https://tinyurl.com/ya97rg6o
2.Click on "look inside" which is directly below "search results" that
yields four sub collections: Aden, Administration, countries and regions
and subject matter-
3.Choose one. For purposes of this example I chose "countries and regions"

4.Click on "look inside" and 5 records groups open: Cyprus, Iran, Israel,
Middle East and Turkey
5.Click on one of the subgroups -for purposes of this example I clicked on
Cyprus
When that window opens, click on "look inside" and 8 series opens up. For
purposes of this example I clicked on "case files" which opens up another
window and
6.Click on ":look inside"
There a hypertext link to Cyprus: Individual cases 1947
7.Click on that and then "Look Inside: and 6 links appear. Click on one and
a new window opens and
8.down the bottom is a pdf file-click on that and the file opens.

Note: depending on which country you decide to open the documents may be in
a language other than English.

If you have any questions about accessing the records please do not ask me
but contact the JDC through their website at: http://archives.jdc.org and at
the bottom of the page fill out the "contact us" form. I will tell you that
I completed that form and they contacted me within a few hours. I also
called in and one of their staff walked me through an example so I could
post this. Their staff is very patient and knowledgeable.

Re: Meaning of names Bronislava, Iona and Ioinya and Yakov #general

Judith Singer
 

The name Iona is the same as Yona; initial Is and Ys are interchangeable in Russian
transliterations. Yona is a Biblical name, Kings II 14:25. I have never seen the
spelling Ioinya but it is probably a variation, nickname, or diminutive of Iona.
Our ancestors were casual about spelling and almost endlessly creative in their use
of nicknames. Yakov is one of the versions of the Hebrew name we usually see in the
form of Jacob; its diminutive is usually Yankel (or Jankel or Iankel). Yosif is a
separate name. Bronislava is a name of Slavic origin, more often found in what was
then Czechoslovakia but also used in Russia. It may have been adopted
by assimilationist Jews who based it on the Jewish name Broniya, >from the Yiddish
for "brown".
