JONT #general


Dr.Katalin Got
 

Dear John,I think you are looking for the organisation JOINT.There indeed
is and has been such an organisation.We lived in Budapest after the war and
can thank the Joint to be able to exist and to go through University years.
They also paid the expenses of our immigration to Australia and that of my
mother and aunt.There are numberless Jews grateful to the JOINT all around
the World.Their headquarter is in New York City. I do not know the address
but I think Genners who live there might give you exact information.
Best regards to your aunt in Poland.

organization was (apparently) an acronym "JONT", and that it might have
been headquartered in New York City. Any info would be appreciated.

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee still exists.

I did a search on google for Joint Jewish ORG and these were some
of the websites that came up:

http://www.jewish.org.pl/english/foundati/JOINT.html
http://www.jdc.org/news/0202fsu.cfm
http://www.jdc.org/about/
This last web page gives a brief history about the JDC, which started
back in 1914 when Henry Morgenthau Sr. cabled Jacob Schiff, asking for
$50,000 to help Jews in pre-WWI Eretz Yisrael -- and this sum was raised
within a month.
According to the website the "JDC is still serving as the overseas arm
of the American Jewish community."

Their e-mail address appears to be: info@...
