Descriptive Summary

Creator: National Jewish Welfare Board, Bureau of War Records
Title: National Jewish Welfare Board, Bureau of War Records, 1940-1969
Dates:undated, 1940-1969 (bulk 1943-1946)
Abstract: The Bureau of War Records include approximately 85,000 individual service files and 320,000 surrogate index cards collected by the BWR and the Greater New York War Records Committee on behalf of Jewish soldiers and sailors who served in World War II. The BWR also conducted surveys of Jewish doctors, dentists, farmers and refugees who served in the United States Armed Forces and compiled population studies for cities containing Jewish populations greater than 25,000, among them Trenton, N.J. and New York City. The individual service files typically provide a soldier's name, age, rank, serial number, service branch, home address, civilian occupation, next of kin, awards and casualties. These files contain supporting documentation culled from newspapers, telephone conversations, and correspondence exchanged among BWR staff and volunteers, service personnel and their families, and representatives of the United States Armed Forces. The alphabetical master cards series serves as an abbreviated, annotated index for the more substantial individual service files of Jewish service personnel who won awards or suffered casualties during the war. The Bureau maintained correspondence files for permanent staff members including Salo Baron, Edward Burnstein, Louis Dublin, Elisha Friedman, Dr. Maurice Hexter, Rabbi Edward Israel, Samuel Kohs, Louis Kraft, Samuel Leff, Harry Lurie, Herbert Marks, Benjamin Rabinowitz, Philip Schiff, Selma Schnaper, Jerome Seidman, David Turtletaub, Frank Weil, Milton Weill, Arthur Weyne, and Joseph Zubin. The Bureau also preserved correspondence with representatives of local war records committees, religious and community service organizations including the United Service Organization, Jewish Community Centers, Hebrew Associations, and the National Refugee Service, as well as publishers, alumni associations, and military personnel from the offices of United States Army, Navy, and Quartermaster General's office. It retained copies of published and printed materials including studies, lists, guides, forms, and cards. Among the vital records are charts depicting the BWR administrative hierarchy; personnel and staff records; lists of volunteers and field representatives employed throughout the United States; minutes of meetings; annual, quarterly, and special reports; budget materials; and policies and procedures implemented during the war records program.

Historical Note

The National Jewish Welfare Board and its affiliated member organizations established the Bureau of War Records for the purpose of collecting and compiling information about Jewish Americans who served in the United States Armed Forces during World War II. The origins of the Bureau of War Records can be traced back to the experience of the Jewish Welfare Board (JWB) in providing religious and social services to American Jewish soldiers and sailors during and after World War I (see Guide to the Records of the National Jewish Welfare Board, I-337), and to the American Jewish Committee, whose Office of War Records documented the contributions of Jewish servicemen to the United States military during World War I (see American Jewish Committee, Office of War Records, I-9). During the interwar years, the JWB - Army-Navy Division worked with federated Jewish philanthropic and cultural centers to deliver services to Jewish soldiers located at military bases throughout the United States and abroad.

As the United States mobilized for defensive military actions during the emergency period of 1939-1941, the JWB created new bureaus and committees to deal with particular aspects of social services for American Jewish servicemen and women. One such service involved the collection, authentication, and distribution of unofficial military service records for Jewish soldiers and sailors then being drafted into the United States Armed Forces. Under the leadership of Rabbi Edward Israel, the JWB's Committee on Statistics convened several conferences with its national affiliates to consider the problem of collecting data on Jewish military service. On October 9, 1941, twenty-one national organizations affiliated with the National Jewish Welfare Board (NJWB) met and resolved that the Army and Navy Service Division of the NJWB would assume responsibility for overseeing a Bureau of War Records (BWR). Representatives of the NJWB and its affiliates constituted an Advisory Committee of the BWR. By the end of the war, the number of affiliates would total thirty-eight. During the same meeting, a Technical Committee on War Records was added to advise the BWR staff about the use of statistical methods for compiling and analyzing Jewish war records. Among those who served on the Technical Committee were Chairman and Vice-President of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Louis I. Dublin, Elisha M. Friedman, Dr. Maurice B. Hexter, Daniel Katz, Samuel Leff, Harry L. Lurie, Herbert Marks, Joshua Marcus, Dr. Maurice Taylor, and Dr. Joseph Zubin.

The principal duties of the national office of the BWR were to assist local Jewish communities in establishing war records committees; to authenticate all war records submitted to the NJWB on behalf of Jewish servicemen and women; to calculate the proportion and number of Jews in the armed forces; to publish information of use to families of Jewish service personnel, the NJWB and its affiliated members; and to publicize stories of Jewish soldiers' contributions to the war effort. The initial budget for the BWR was $14,800, which covered the cost of hiring a director, two stenographers, and two file clerks.

In the summer of 1942, Samuel C. Kohs, a noted sociologist and professor, was hired by the JWB to conduct a sample population survey of a large city containing a significant proportion of Jewish residents, and to test the results of statistical evidence, procedures, and techniques for documenting the approximate number and percentage of Jews living in the United States. Kohs selected Trenton, New Jersey for his sample population due to its proximity to New York City and the large number of Jews living in the Metropolitan Trenton area. Kohs' experience during the Trenton study was formative in the planning of other local population studies, the setting up of local war record committees, and the organization of statewide war records collection programs. As the last national census of Jewish Americans was conducted in the mid-1930s, Kohs' work served as a vital starting point for a comprehensive statistical analysis of the proportion of Jews who served in the United States armed forces during World War II.

On January 1, 1943, the Advisory Committee appointed Samuel Kohs director of the BWR. Kohs managed the central office of the BWR and acted as liaison to the Department of Public Information and other departments of the NJWB. Under Kohs, the BWR established several subdivisions. Arthur Weyne headed Authentications. David Turtletaub and Edward Burnstein served as liaisons to local war committees and state historical societies. Jerome Seidman and Harry Dobkin led the Community Studies subdivision; Joshua Marcus oversaw all special studies; and Selma Schnaper managed the Clerical subdivision. By 1944, the Bureau employed some twenty non-professional staff members across thee units: secretarial, clerical, and inquiry.

At the outset, the BWR collected information about Jewish service personnel onsite at military bases by means of registration cards enclosed in bibles and prayer books distributed by the JWB; through furlough papers submitted during the high holy seasons; and from service records secured from the Adjunct General's office in Washington, D.C. Staff members working at the national office of the BWR authenticated all Jewish casualties and awards after consulting government publications, local press releases, and publications of organizations with significant Jewish membership. However, as the scale of the United States military commitment to Europe and Asia increased dramatically during the years 1941-1945, and as Jewish service personnel mobilized for war on many fronts, it became necessary for the BWR to further decentralize and standardize the process of collecting and authenticating data. To encourage community participation in the task of war record collection, the BWR sent representatives to every city containing a Jewish population greater than 2,500. Bureau staff corresponded with representatives of local Army-Navy committees, Jewish welfare and community councils, as well as leaders of community centers and synagogues serving Jewish communities smaller than 1,000 people. Between 1943 and 1946 the number of local war record committees in the United States increased from approximately 400 to 1,200.

In order to stimulate the collection of data about Jewish service personnel, the BWR printed various standardized forms which it distributed from its central offices in New York City to representatives serving on war records committees or to individuals active in affiliated member organizations. Information collected on printed forms included a soldier's name, address, age, civilian occupation, next of kin, military rank, service branch, promotions, medals, awards, and casualty status. On January 1, 1944, the BWR implemented a system of correspondence with local war records committees in which the BWR supplied standard monthly report forms that were filled out and submitted to the national office by local representatives. The forms provided space for reporting the names of service personnel and the number of men and women from a community serving in the armed forces, as well as the number of casualties, awards, and commissioned officers. By September 1944, local war records committees assumed responsibility for authenticating information about Jewish service personnel whose names were submitted to them by the national office of the BWR.

From the beginning of the war records project, the BWR central office collected and organized information submitted by local war records committees regarding awards and casualties. BWR staff created individual files for soldiers and sailors who were of likely Jewish descent. The soldiers' files contained printed forms, newspaper clippings, correspondence, and photographs which provided information used to authenticate Jewish ancestry. The Authentications Division of the BWR verified information about all known Jewish service personnel who suffered casualties or received awards for distinguished service during the war. By July 1946, the BWR had received nearly 150,000 items related to military service. From among these records, the BWR staff authenticated cases for over 10,000 deaths, 20,000 wounded, 3,000 missing, 4,000 prisoners, and nearly 50,000 distinguished service awards garnered by approximately 26,000 Jewish soldiers and sailors. Collating records of Jewish servicemen and women across several different categories was a difficult task. In this task the BWR was aided by the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM). IBM employees worked with BWR staff to develop a punch card system that Bureau staff members used to input standardized data for such information as military rank, service branch, and awards. Based on queries submitted by the BWR, IBM regularly compiled data from punch cards into printed reports. Information from the IBM reports underpinned much of the statistical analysis featured in BWR printed materials and publications.

The BWR also initiated numerous enumerative studies of Jewish Americans. The BWR compiled lists of Jewish nurses, dentists, refugees, commissioned officers, and families having three or more members who died in uniform. BWR staff, local war records committees, and affiliated members conducted statewide surveys of the number of Jewish medical practitioners who enlisted in the armed forces. The Bureau also gathered unofficial census information about Jews in the United States using house-by-house canvasses and statistical sampling techniques. The BWR published books to aid local communities in conducting population studies such as the Self-Survey Manual: Procedures to be Followed in Your Own Community to Determine the Ration of Jews in the Armed Forces and the Handbook of Instructions for Survey Consultants. Working with thousands of volunteers, BWR staff conducted Jewish population surveys in 25 cities while also conducting statistical sample surveys in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago. The BWR estimated the Jewish population of the United States and updated official census figures compiled in 1936. Based on these population figures, the Bureau was able to calculate the total number of Jewish Americans eligible for selective service and the number of Jews active in the armed forces. They then compared the percentage of active Jewish servicemen and women as a ratio of the whole Jewish population to that of the United States population as a whole.

In addition to the hundreds of pamphlets, forms, guides, and lists printed by the BWR for use by local war records committees, the Bureau published several reports and studies about its work. In October 1943, Louis Dublin published "Keeping the Record of Jewish War Service" in the Contemporary Jewish Record (see Box 3, folder 2). That same month, the BWR distributed the first issue of its newsletter entitled "Compiling the Record." Bureau staff members wrote "Featured Releases" about honored or notable soldiers and sailors which the BWR distributed through the JWB Department of Public Information. The BWR periodically published its statistical analyses in a pamphlet entitled "These Are the Facts." The Public Information Department, which included representatives from the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, the American Jewish Congress, the Jewish Labor Committee, and the Jewish War Veterans, also regularly distributed an "Honor Roll" pamphlet listing brief descriptions of Jewish servicemen and women. An honor roll was also printed regularly in the American Jewish Yearbook published by the Jewish Publication Society of America.

The BWR sought other means of publicizing Jewish contributions to the United States war effort. In May 1945, the Bureau prepared an exhibit showcasing the BWR program and highlighting various statistics compiled during the war. The exhibit was displayed in Washington, D.C. during the 29th annual meeting of the NJWB. It was hoped that the exhibit would stimulate interest in a permanent museum devoted to Jewish American war service to be housed in building owned by the NJWB. While the museum did not take root in Washington, the BWR exhibit was displayed that same summer at the Jewish Conference of Social Work in Atlantic City.

With the German surrender on May 7-8, 1945, the BWR began planning for its eventual dissolution. Bureau staff recognized that the number of war casualties and awards would decrease significantly after May, but at the same time, the contributions of volunteer workers throughout the United States would also likely decline. The BWR thus accelerated its war records collection program with the announcement of War Records Month to be held in January 1946. At the same time, the Bureau devoted considerable attention to the problem of grave registration. The NJWB and the BWR worked with the Quartermaster General's Office in Washington, D.C. to establish a list of all Jewish personnel buried overseas. The list served as a guide to help verify the type of burial services provided to Jewish servicemen and women and to facilitate the repatriation of soldiers' remains interred overseas.

By July 1946, the BWR ceased processing new cases in order to concentrate on completing all pending files. The Bureau expected to compile final tallies of awards and casualties as well as useful statistical information from the special studies. The honor roll and special studies completed up to July 1946 were published the following year in a comprehensive two-volume survey entitled American Jews in World War II: the Story of 550,000 Fighters for Freedom.

The BWR scaled back its staff to a handful of employees in 1947; the remaining personnel oversaw the transfer of Bureau records to the central files of the NJWB. The NJWB briefly revived the Bureau during the Korean War, though no comprehensive plan was established for collecting and preserving the records of Jews who served in this conflict.

Scope and Content Note

The National Jewish Welfare Board - Bureau of War Records consists of 272 legal-sized document boxes, 320 index card boxes, one medium oversized document box, and one MAP folder.

The document boxes contain approximately 85,000 individual service record files for Jewish soldiers and sailors who served in World War II, as well as administrative records, correspondence, and subject files. The individual service record files (Series II) contain information about Jewish soldiers and sailors who served during World War II; the information may include the soldier's name, address, age, civilian occupation, next of kin, military service branch, serial number, rank, theater of operation, awards and casualties. These files contain supporting documentation culled from newspapers, telephone conversations, interviews, and correspondence exchanged among BWR staff and volunteers, service personnel and their family, and representatives of the United States Armed Forces. The files are a rich resource for genealogists seeking information about relatives who won awards, were wounded, taken prisoner, or died during the war.

The subject files (Series III) provide other avenues for genealogists and social science researchers to access records for individuals or groups who fall into particular occupational categories such as medical practitioners or farm workers. BWR administrative functions and the work of its various subdivisions and affiliated local war records committees are richly detailed. The BWR maintained correspondence files for many permanent staff, as well as members of the advisory board and the technical committee on statistics. The Bureau also preserved correspondence with representatives of local records committees, religious and community service organizations, publishers, alumni associations, and government agencies. It retained copies of published and printed materials including reports, studies, lists, guides, forms, and holiday greeting cards. Among the vital records contained in Series I and III are charts depicting the BWR administrative hierarchy; personnel and staff records; lists of volunteers and field representatives employed throughout the United States; minutes of meetings; annual, quarterly, and special reports; budget materials; and policies and procedures implemented during the war records program. Some of the many interesting topics discussed in the subject files are public relations and censorship, grave registration, multiple sons who died during the war, cooperation with the IBM corporation, and the rationales for collecting records for Jewish soldiers and sailors.

The index card boxes hold approximately 320,000 cards that point to service record files that were collected by the BWR and the Greater New York War Records Committee. The largest portion of the index cards, the master card index (Series VI), includes cards that point to individual service records for Jewish service personnel who won awards or suffered casualties (Series IV). Index cards in Series VII and VIII do not necessarily point to individual service records contained in this collection. These non-surrogate cards do provide some vital information about Jewish and non-Jewish service personnel. However, this information may not have been authenticated by the BWR.

Acquisition Information

In 1969, the NJWB donated the Bureau’s records to the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS). AJHS Assistant Librarian, Robert Goldman, began cataloging the collection that same year. Concurrently, the AJHS commissioned Fred Sherrow of the Bureau for Applied Social Research to study possible research questions that could be answered using the Bureau of War Records collection and the American Jewish Committee, Office of War Records from World War I. The AJHS preserved Sherrow’s “Report on the Disposition of Studies of American Jewish Servicemen in World Wars I and II,” but no records exist in this Bureau of War Records collection to confirm whether the AJHS attempted to implement Sherrow’s recommendations for further research.

Subseries C: Geographical Correspondence, 1943-1947

Boxes 12-74, MAP 1.
Arrangement:

Chronological and alphabetical by state and city.

Scope and Content:

Subseries C consists of correspondence exchanged between the national office of the BWR and representatives of local Jewish congregations, philanthropic and service organizations, and war records committees. The geographical files are extensive; men and women from over 1,200 Jewish communities corresponded with BWR administrators. Frequent correspondents among BWR administrators are David Turtletaub, who oversaw the authentication of war records; Samuel Kohs, the director of the BWR; Joshua Marcus, administrator for special studies; community survey administrators Irving Seid and Jerome Seidman; Leffert Holz, Edward Burnstein, and Harry Dobkin, who oversaw the organization of state and regional war records committees; and Selma Schnaper, senior file clerk and BWR office manager. Among the Jewish organizations whose members frequently served on local war records boards are the NJWB, Army and Navy Committee, the United Jewish Fund, the United Service Organization-Jewish Welfare Board, the Federation of Jewish Charities, Jewish Community Centers and Councils, Young Men’s and Young Women’s Hebrew Associations, the Council of Jewish Women, and the Jewish Veteran’s Service Committee. The BWR also corresponded with the American Association of State and Local History and various state historical societies in regard to the preservation of Jewish war records.

Although some local war records boards were active from April 1942 until February 1947, the bulk of the geographical correspondence dates from March 1943 to October 1946. Correspondence files for most cities contain a brief history of the local war records program. These reports typically discuss the organization of local war records committees, affiliated Jewish institutions, interactions with visiting BWR staff, and major programs undertaken such as compiling war records cards, authenticating Jewish ancestry, and conducting community surveys. Interfiled with letters and memoranda are lists of soldiers and sailors, statistical and administrative reports, requests for printed materials, survey instructions, newspaper clippings, newsletters and brochures printed by Jewish service organizations. Most communities compiled lists of solders and confirmed the Jewish ancestry of particular service personnel. Typically, however, the printed service record cards do not appear in the geographical correspondence as they were incorporated into the individual service files organized under Series IV below. Beginning in 1943, geographical correspondence includes information about special studies including refugees, dentists, doctors, and community population and war service canvasses. After August 1945, the National Bureau of War Records wrote frequently to local boards as a means to stimulate timely completion of studies such as the breakdown of military personnel in each service branch and authentications of pending casualty and award cases. By September 1946, most local war records committees submitted final lists of unauthenticated cases, refugees, and commissioned officers to the national office of the BWR.

Among the unique records contained in this series is a speech delivered by Mississippi Senator James O. Eastland to a national audience on Army Day, April 6, 1944 in which the senator praised the contributions of Jews to the United States Armed Forces (see Washington, D.C., 1944). The file for Chicago, Illinois includes a report printed by the BWR that succinctly summarizes the method use by war records committees to conduct a sample survey of Jewish households for a census of the metropolitan Chicago area. The Greater New York City War Records Committee collected transcripts of radio plays and broadcasts they produced in 1946. The war records committees of Goldsboro and Greensboro, North Carolina wrote brief histories of Jewish life in these cities which regularly hosted military personnel on furlough during World War II.

Series III: Subject Files, 1941-1947

Box 75-Box 116, MAP 1.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical by subject, but within each subject file, records may be arranged chronologically or both chronologically and alphabetically by surname.

Scope and Content:

The subject files in Series III consists of memoranda, reports, and other written materials generated by particular departments and committees within the Bureau of War Records, as well as correspondence exchanged between members of the BWR and various fraternal organizations, civic associations, and corporations.

Among the significant records contained in this series are:

o The Addressograph Department file (Box 75) which contains lists of names and addresses for local War Records Committee chairmen representatives dating from June 1944-May 1946.

o Advisory Committee files (Box 76) which include records about representatives of the BWR Advisory Board, and the Technical Committee on War Records, the Administrative Committee, and the Army and Navy Public Relations Committee.

o Annual Reports of the Bureau of War Records (Box 77) for the years 1943-1945.

o Authentication files (Box 77) describing the process of verifying the identity of Jewish soldiers.

o The Army and Navy Division (NJWB) file (Box 77) and the BWR-Staff Reports files (Box 78) including monthly and annual reports and departmental manuals.

o Monthly statistics compiled by the BWR (Box 78) which indicate the number of authenticated casualties and awards among Jewish servicemen.

o The name, rank, service branch, military location, and home city of Jewish officers (Box 80) which are listed in the file on commissioned officers.

o Brief historical sketches of community studies (Box 81) compiled for 41 cities.

o Lists of cities (Box 83) with over 5,000 Jewish residents cross-referenced with the names of field agents, local War Records Centers, and local organizations affiliated with the NJWB.

o Regular correspondence (Boxes 85-87) between the BWR and the Grave Registration Service of the Quartermaster General's Office in Washington, D.C. and family members of deceased Jewish soldiers in order to facilitate the location of grave sites in Europe and the repatriation of bodies buried overseas to the United States.

o The International Business Machines files (Box 89) which include correspondence with Jarvis Bell of I.B.M. regarding Hollerith punch cards, data errors, computer reports; and punch card template forms with annotated column headings.

o The file on Jews in American Wars (Box 90) containing a draft history about Jewish involvement with the United States military during the Revolutionary War and Early National periods.

o The file on the Korean conflict (Box 90) which includes an overview of the war records program and casualty and award lists for Jewish service personnel.

o The library file (Box 90) including an annotated bibliography of sources containing lists of Jewish soldiers who served in World War I; the sources were available in the New York Public Library and Jewish Theological Seminary (New York, N.Y.) as of October 1942.

o Lists of the names and ranks of Jewish medical and dental practitioners in the service in the Public Health Service file (Box 96)

o The Public Relations department (Box 96) news releases describing notable acts of heroism on the part of Jewish service personnel.

o Joseph M. Papo's brief draft history of Sephardic Jews (Box 98).

o Statistical files (Boxes 101-105) including correspondence, reports, tables of raw data, and newspaper clippings. The clippings cite population and service figures, but also offer stories about individual soldiers and sailors; servicewomen figure prominently among the news reports filed under Jews in the service. Some reports provide analysis of statistical methods or results of particular studies.

o Community study files (Box 106-107), organized by city and state, often including drafts and copies of final reports, statistical reports, memoranda, and correspondence, though only a few contain information about how a study was organized and conducted. Among the more substantially documented studies are Jamaica, New York and Los Angeles, California. The file on Jamaica contains standardized cards used to document service personnel incarcerated in military prisons.

o The Congressional Medal of Honor study file (Box 107) which includes brief narratives of the events that led the United States Armed Forces to bestow high honors on Jewish servicemen.

o The dental studies files (Box 108) including draft and final reports about dentists living in New York City and New York State who served in the armed forces. Newspaper clippings filed with a dental study in Jamaica, N.Y. discuss racial quotas for Jewish students in New York City higher education institutions.

o The Farm Family study file (Box 109) which includes annual reports of the Jewish Agricultural Society (1944-1945), a short narrative about Jewish life in Flemington, N.J., and study results from surveys of Jewish families living in rural areas of N.J., Conn., Mich., and Mass.

o Physician studies (Boxes 110-111) which were conducted in twelve cities located in N.J., N.Y., Mass., Conn., Iowa, Tex., Penn., and Mich. The physician studies files contain lists of physicians that indicate Jewish identity, active military service, rank, and service branch. Statewide sample surveys of physicians were also conducted in all counties of N.J. and N.Y.

o Records pertaining to the population studies (Box 112) conveying the total Jewish population figures compiled by city, as well as the survey dates, the survey processes undertaken in the various cities, forms and instructions for conducting surveys, and various tables of data sets and subsets such as the number of Jewish males 18-38 years of age and cities with Jewish populations in excess of 10,000. Some of the information is duplicated in the files on community studies.

o The refugee study files (Boxes 112-113) which include instructions for carrying out the study, preliminary reports of findings, memoranda regarding planning and coordination with the National Refugee Service, Inc. (United Service for New Americans), questionnaire forms listing refugees living in New York City by name, nationality, year of immigration, and service record. Attached to the form are copies of master file index cards for Jewish service personnel. Data compiled from questionnaires are arranged in table format and yield interesting sociological trends among Jewish immigrants from Europe during the period 1930-1945. Particularly insightful is the study of Jewish immigrants living in Philadelphia and the combined survey of refugees living in forty-eight separate communities throughout the United States.

Series IV: Individuals: Record files for casualties and awards, 1942-1947

Box 117-Box 262, OS 1, MAP 1.
Arrangement:

Five subseries.

Subseries A: Individuals - Record series I (A-Z), 1942-1947

Box 117-Box 247, Box OS1, MAP 1.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical by surname and given name.

Scope and Content:

Subseries A consists of individual files on Jewish men and women who earned awards, suffered casualties, or were party to newsworthy events in the war. Information about Jewish service personnel is presented on standardized forms printed by the Bureau of War Records. The Honor Roll Record form lists a soldier's name, address, serial number, years of service, age, year inducted, next of kin, Jewish ancestry, service branch, and information about casualty or award status. The Record of Casualty form lists a soldier's name, age, serial number, Jewish ancestry, next of kin, service branch, casualty status, location of casualty, and a description of the events that occurred in the theater of war. On the reverse side of the casualty form, the Grave Registration Department may have indicated the place, date and cause of death, together with the date of burial, the name of the cemetery, its religious affiliation, and the grave number, row, plot and marker (see also Series VIII, Subseries A Grave registration cards). This form also includes information about awards received, affiliations, hobbies, civilian occupation, name and location of high school, and any personal information gleaned from correspondence or personal contact with a soldier's family. While original letters from soldiers rarely accompany individual files, the forms often contain portions of soldiers' letters. Topics discussed in these accounts frequently include narratives of military engagements.

Casualty and award forms bearing authenticated information are marked in red and typically include the date the BWR received the information. The source of authenticated information is generally listed on the form. In many cases records used to authenticate awards and casualty status such as newspaper clippings, photographs, and personal letters are attached to the standardized forms; these supporting documents provide biographical information about service personnel. A soldier's file may contain one or more standardized forms, one for each military action or citation. Some forms are also annotated with citations indicating the title and volume number of a publication in which information about a soldier appears. For example, AJYB death vol. 47 indicates that a soldier's name appears in the death notice section of American Jewish Yearbook, volume 47.

The BWR used a variety of acronyms for awards, service branches, and other titles attributed to service personnel. Often memoranda and forms include acronyms such as DFC, AM, 3 OLC, which refers to a soldier who was awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross, an Air Medal, and three Oak Leaf Clusters (see Series III, Awards and decorations, descriptions of, and I.B.M., coding schema for BWR files).

Subseries A also includes an I.B.M. computer printout of the names of Jewish service personnel compiled by BWR from the start of the program up to May 1946.
