    Central British Fund for Germany Jewry
    The Central British Fund for German Jewry, otherwise known as the Central British Fund (or CBF), was established in May 1933 to assist Jewish refugees who had fled Nazi Germany. As part of the CBF, the Jewish Refugees Committee (JRC) was created to handle individual refugee cases, handling the logistics of immigration to the United Kingdom, as well as efforts to resettle refugees in Palestine. The CBF had an agreement with the British government that refugees admitted into the United Kingdom would not be a burden on the British government, although following the outbreak of war in 1939, the British government began subsidizing the work of the JRC. Beginning in 1944, the CBF was renamed the Central British Fund for Jewish Relief and Rehabilitation, and expanded its work to helping Jews in parts of Europe liberated from Nazism, including Jews in liberated concentration camps. In the post-war years, it was one of the organizations that helped found the United Restitution Organization (URO) and was one of the founding members of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference). It is presently known as World Jewish Relief. [Source: Encyclopedia Judaica, 2007].
