Flier for a United Jewish Socialist Party meeting owned by Moszek Brycman

Object | Accession Number: 2002.198.1

Flier advertising a gathering organized by the United Jewish Socialist Party owned by Moszek (born Moishe) Brycman. The gathering was in support of Eretz-Israel, and held at the Maison de la Chimie in Paris, France. The participants ((Zalman Roubachov, Zarbavel, Idelson, Arnstein, and Georges Nadjib Nazor) belonged to a delegation from Israel to the International Congress of Labor Unions. In 1931, Moishe immigrated to Paris, France, and the following year he married Marie Edelszein. Moishe was involved in Zionist youth movements and belonged to Poale Zion. In June 1940, following the German invasion of France, Moishe fled and made his way to Pau, France, where he became active in the Zionist resistance. Working under the codename “Bremond,” he helped manufacture false papers, bring children and adults to safety in Spain, and establish contact with other resistance groups in the Pyrenees. In April 1943, the resistance asked him to move to Grenoble, France. From May 1943 to September 1944, he stayed in Grenoble where he served as treasurer of the Committee for the Defense of the Jews and helped bring children safely over the border into Switzerland. Moishe was liberated by American forces in Grenoble in August 1944. After liberation he returned to Paris and worked with Jewish children in a home in Les Andelys, France.
