Briefs

In July 1939, 10 crates
containing 500 examples
of Judaica were deliv-
ered to The Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, New York City.
The understanding was
that if, at the end of 15
years there remained a
Jewish community in
Danzig, these treasures
would be returned.
If not, the valuables
would stay in this country
"for the inspiration and
education of the rest of the
world." In August 1939, the
