NEW YORK — The first

Joint Distribution Committee,
by Israeli historian Dr. Ye-
huda Bauer, will be pub-
lished in May by the Jewish
Publication Society.
Edward Ginsberg, JDC
chairman, said the book,
"My Brother's Keeper," will
cover the period from the
origin of the JDC in 1914 to
the outbreak of World War
II. The second volume will
. deal with JDC activities dur_
ing the war years, 1939 to
1945. The third will cover
1945 to the present.
Dr. Bauer, associate pro-

fessor at the Hebrew Uni-

the Institute of Contemporary
Jewry. He spent two years
at JDC headquarters in New
York researching its archives
and interviewing survivors
of the Holocaust and JDC

prior to, during, and after
the war years.
