As the extermination of the Jews by the Nazis became knownin the West, various groups attempted to relieve sufferingand rescue Jews. These consisted primarily of a number ofJewish organizations and the War Refugee Board establishedby President Roosevelt in January 1944. Although the reliefarrived too late for most and under the circumstances wasnot extensive, it aided thousands of Jews. The facsimilesreproduced here pertain to the emigration of the owners ofimportant industrial firms in Hungary in exchange forcession of their holdings to the SS, relief for persecutedJews, activities of War Refugee Bd. and the unsuccessfulattempts by Jewish organizations to persuade the War Dept.to bomb extermination facilities in Auschwitz and railroadcenters leading from there to Hungary.
