Historical Note

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (also known as the JDC) was founded on November 27, 1914, in order to facilitate and centralize the collection and distribution of funds by American Jews for Jews abroad. The Landsmanshaftn Department of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (LD) was originally organized as a department of the JDC, known as the Landsmanshaftn Bureau, in 1919 in New York. The aim of the department was to encourage relief efforts by the landsmanshaftn in the United States for their native communities in Eastern Europe.

This work was temporarily discontinued in 1924 before it was revived in the late 1930s as part of the JDC Reconstruction program. At this time, the JDC pledged to match with equal amounts of funds every donation made by each landsmanshaft to their former native communities, particularly those made on behalf of the interest-free loan associations (gmilas khesed societies) in these communities. The JDC organized a Landsmanshaftn Fraternal Division, known usually as the Landsmanshaftn Department, in 1937 and this department successfully enlisted the cooperation of several hundred landsmanshaftn.

The outbreak of World War II put a temporary end to this program, which was revived once again in 1945, this time mainly as a channel of relief aid furnished by the landsmanshaftn for the survivors from their native communities. These activities were later expanded to include issues of immigration and the location of survivors.

Scope and Content Note

The majority of the collection consists of correspondence with some newspaper clippings, photographs, committee meeting minutes, bank reports and receipts from the interest-free loan associations and from individual donors, official documentation about immigration and displaced persons, and a few programs and invitations from various events held by the landsmanshaftn. The materials date from 1926 to 1950 with the bulk dating from 1937-1939 and 1945-1949. Over 800 communities and countries are represented. Most of the documents for an individual community are in a single folder, however some communities have several folders. The majority of the collection is in English and Yiddish, although various official documents are in Polish, German, Russian, Spanish, French, and Arabic on the documents from various governmental and JDC offices around the world. Folders 41, 43, 117, 155, 234, 246, 307, and 353 contain some information about the activities of TOZ, the Society for the Protection of the Health of the Jewish Population in Poland, including some photographs.

Many of the towns have several different names and different ways of spelling these names, depending upon what language is used and what system of transliteration, if any, is used. Most town names are listed by their Polish name and spelling in the container lists, although some folders have information about landsmanshaftn using a transliterated spelling, such as folder 43, labeled Brzesc and containing information about the Brisker Relief Society. Alternate names and spellings are in parentheses following the town name. Some of the folders are labeled according to the name of the landsmanshaft, although they are represented by the town name in the container list, such as folder 824, listed as Satanow but labeled as Satanover Sisterhood Bronx, for Child Transportation to Palestine. Some folders of towns that were known by different names or were so small that former occupants were part of the landsmanshaft of the closest larger town contain only a cross-reference sheet, such as folder 241, Lubar, directing the researcher to folder 378, Rowne. When one landsmanshaft serves multiple towns, the town names are divided by slash marks, such as folder 14, Bendzin (Bedzin) / Sosnowiec, which contains information about the landsmanshaft that serves both Bedzin and Sosnowiec. The materials are arranged chronologically in each folder.

Arrangement

At the time of the accession, the materials were arranged in two series, Records of the Landsmanshaftn Fraternal Division 1926-1940 and Landsmanshaftn Department Post-World War II Records, 1944-1950. Each series consisted of general correspondence files and correspondence with landsmanshaftn – the latter filed under the name of the locality to which it pertained. This classification has been retained, as has the original series and folder arrangement. Folders are arranged chronologically and alphabetically by the name of the community, although any discrepancies in alphabetizing have been retained from the original organization. The series have been further divided into several subseries.

Series II: Landsmanshaftn Department Post-World War II Records, 1944-1950

453 folders
Scope and Content:

This series contains information about the post-war activities of the Landsmanshaftn Department, which was reestablished in 1945, on behalf of the various communities in Eastern Europe. Much of this information has to do with monetary requests made to important and influential members and to the landsmanshaftn as a whole, both from the LD and from the communities themselves, donations made, relatives sought, activities of the landsmanshaftn, financial statements from the interest-free loan associations, information about the communities and about the landsmanshaftn, lists of members of several landsmanshaftn, and newspaper clippings about the communities.

Subseries 1: General correspondence chronological file, 1945-1950

6 folders
Scope and Content:

This subseries contains correspondence about relief efforts made by the LD on behalf of Jews in liberated areas, including food, clothing and medical supplies packages sent to these communities, and summaries of activities of the LD, JDC and the landsmanshaftn themselves. These relief packages were often partially or entirely paid for by the landsmanshaftn of these towns and districts and much of the correspondence is concerned with donations sought and received by the LD in order to facilitate this.
