I Live. Send Help. touchingly recounts the intertwined history of American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Jewish people through the key moments, both tragic and redemptive, that have defined a century of Jewish life. The book title was inspired by a desperate cable sent in July 1945 from Warsaw.
JDC's mission today is unchanged from when it first began in 1914: to save lives and to sustain Jewish communities around the globe. That commitment comes to life on these pages, through a moving selection of photographs, documents, and artifacts from the unparalleled JDC Archives. The tale they tell belongs to all of us, and it is timeless.
