HIAS Search and Location Unit Reports Success in '74



During

the course of a year HIAS
Search and Location han-
dles 2,000-3,000 requests
from Jews throughout the
world to locate friends and
relatives, sometimes involv-
ing separations of up to 50
years.
Often working with mere
shreds of information, the
multi-lingual staff was able
to locate two-thirds of the
missing relatives in 1974.
HIAS Search and Loca
tion works through a net-
work of international con-

tracts established over

nearly a century of rescue
and resettlement work. On
the average, it takes about a
year to make a connection,
particularly if the separa-
tion has been a long one.

If the missing relative is
believed to be in the U.S.,
the first step is a check
through Central Files at
HIAS. The case history of
every refugee brought to
this country with HIAS'
help since 1948 is housed
here. Earlier records are
kept at YIVO, the Jewish

historical and research
organization.

Search and Location also
runs notices in the Yiddish
and Anglo-Jewish press
across the country and the
German-language Aufbau.
Cooperation with Jewish
family services and federa-
tions nationwide is also part
of the procedure.
If an American is seeking
relatives in the Soviet
Union, the information is
sent to HIAS, Geneva. From
there it is transmitted to the
International Red Cross
which carries out the search
in Russia. In 60 other coun-

tries, Search and Location women murdered during

NEW YORK — Sharply
critical of the Ford Admin-
istration's failure in provid-
ing aid to New York City,
Rabbi Alexander M. Schni-
dler has called for an outcry
of national religious leaders
to "dramatize to Washing-
ton that support for the city
represents a moral necess-
ity."
Rabbi Schindler, whose
organization represents 715
Reform synagogues and 1.1
million people, said, "I am
asking not for aid for the
city for financial reasons,
but for moral reasons.
When New York was gener-
ous,- it was overly generous
in the right direction help-
ing millions of Americans to
become the productive tax
paying citizens that they
are." He urged that Ameri-
ca reciprocate for New
York's generosity.
