Biographical History

The Association of Polish Jews in France was established in 1933. The organization's goal was to unite Polish-Jewish immigrants to France. Tasks taken up by the association included providing material and legal aid to Polish Jewish immigrants and sponsoring Jewish soldiers who served in the Polish Army in France. The association published a weekly in Yiddish, Di vokh, in 1939-40.
