Event description

Description

In 1933 The Central British Fund for Germany Jewry or CBF was established. Its aim was to rescue Jews from persecution in Germany after Hitler came to power. For 60 years the organisation provided support and assistance to Jewish people at times of need, including the Suez Crisis in 1956, the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, Ethiopia in 1984 and the Balkans War in 1992. In 1995 the CBF change its name to World Jewish Relief (WJR), to reflect its global role. Since then its international work has continued. The records held at LMA reveal the WJR’s powerful and influential work.
