In the postwar period, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (“the Joint”) played a major role in Poland, shipping vital supplies to the needy, promoting economic activity, and supporting a network of schools, homes, hospitals, and cultural institutions. This street scene in Wroclaw shows children who have just received new coats (from the Joint) at the office of the Central Committee.
