BENEFITING: Blue Card
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
The Blue Card was established by the Jewish community in Germany in the early 1930s, in Germany, to help Jews already being affected by Nazi persecution through loss of jobs and other forms of oppression.
In 1939, The Blue Card was reestablished in the United States to continue aiding refugees of Nazi persecution resettling in America. To this day, many of our Board members are the children and grandchildren of The Blue Card's original founders.
After the Holocaust, the mission of the organization was expanded to help survivors
of the Shoah from all European countries. It continues its work to this day.
