American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee
Founded in 1914, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee provided assistance to Jews around the world, particularly in eastern Europe. During the Nazi era, this umbrella agency for aid organizations in the United States was involved in emigration planning and relief work in Germany, until 1939 providing an increasing share of the budget for German Jewish organizations, such as the Reichsvertretung. The Joint efforts continued after the war began and extended beyond the Reich into countries occupied or controlled by Germany.
Founded in the United States.
