General Jewish Council. Selected records.
- Credit Line
- Purchase, 2017.
Constitution, meeting agenda, press releases, statements, memoranda, and similar documents, from the General Jewish Council (New York, NY), relating to its efforts to raise public awareness of the threats of Nazism and anti-Semitism, and to mobilize individuals and organizations in the United States to combat anti-Semitism, 1938-1942. The documents, which were mimeographed copies that were distributed to member organizations, were collected and housed in one volume at the library of the American Jewish Congress at time of distribution, and were later withdrawn from that library. In addition to the draft constitution and the final version that was adopted in August 1938, other documents treat organizational matters, the Council's stance toward other Jewish organizations, whether or not to endorse or advertise in specific publications, and responses to federal and state legislation and court cases, among other topics.
