My maternal grandmother Golda "Gussie, Gusta" WEININGER benefited from the HIAS in 1920 in Cherbourg, France, on her way from Czernowitz, Romania to NYC.  They helped provide kosher food, lodging, and a medical exam so she could get the all-important doctor's certificate stating that she was healthy.
