In May of 1948 the U.S. Congress passed the Displaced Persons Act. This act authorized individuals who were displaced from their homelands as a result of World War II to enter the United States. The Unitarian Service Committee reviewed applications for those applying for assistance and endeavored to help many individuals find homes and employment in the United States. The correspondence and applications in this collection include biographical information, information about the occupations of individuals, and accounts of the ways they were living as displaced people.

In conjunction with the Index, the United Nations Relief ... Read More
