Ernst Baerwald speech
Consists of one speech, 10 pages, delivered by Ernst Baerwald to a Jewish congregation in Oakland, CA, in the spring of 1941, regarding the immigration of European Jews to China and Japan. Mr. Baerwald, who had lived in Japan for almost 30 years, attests to the work of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and appeals for funding for these refugees. He also mentions the help that Jan Zwartendijk, Chiune Sugihara (both unnamed in the speech), and Moses Beckleman had provided to refugees in Lithuania.
