Influx of Polish Refugees Into Vienna,
Other Migrants Add to Burdens of JDC

VIENNA—Jewish refugee agen-
cies arc now struggling with the
problems created by the final out-
pouring of Polish Jewry, Louis D.
Horwitz, director-general of the
American Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, stated here.
Since early September, Jews
from Poland have been pouring
through Vienna at the rate of 250
a week, 1,000 a month, he toll
members of the 1969 United Jewish
Appeal Study Mission, now in Eur-
ope for a first-hand look at Jewish

needs. Part of a relief team which
includes the United HIAS Service
and the Jewish Agency, the JDC
is a major beneficiary of the UJA's
annual fund-raising campaign in
which the 33 mission members rep-
resenting 10 American Jewish com-
munities are leaders.

Horwitz anticipated that, at the
present rate, nearly 4,000 Jews
will leave Poland in the last
three and a half months of 1969.
The costs to JDC of caring for
this group, plus refugees from
other countries in Eastern Eur-
ope, the Middle East and North
Africa, are expected to exceed
$1,000,000, he said.

It can take up to six months for
this process to be completed, and
meanwhile it costs the JDC about
