The JDC Names Index is a database where you can search for names of relatives, friends, ancestors; anyone worldwide who has received JDC aid, financial or otherwise. Currently indexed material includes lists of people helped from 1914 to 1973. While this is a substantial sampling of names on lists in our records, it is by no means our entire collection. In the future, additional lists will be included.
The JDC Archives documents the relief, rescue and rehabilitation activities of the JDC from its founding in 1914 to the present. Its holdings include over 3 miles of text documents; over 100,000 photographs; a research library of 6,000 books; and approximately 1,500 audiovisual materials, including 200 oral histories.
