Documents from Jewish Aid Organization in Nazi Gemany

Year: 1941
Decade: 1940s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Scarce printed form letter on the letterhead of the “Judische Winterhilfe” and signed in type by Dr. Conrad Israel Cohn.

Cohn’s letter, also signed by the board of the organization, seeks donations for the organization which aided Jews, especially in the winter. He notes: “…this winter… no Jew in Berlin who needs help should go without… it is everybody’s responsibility to support our cause…”. Signed in facsimile at bottom.

The verso of the letter bears four receipts for donations pasted thereto. Early in 1942 the Nazis disbanded the organization. Dr. Cohn would be sent to Mauthausen where he would die on Aug. 15, 1942.
