The Blue Card
The Blue Card was established by the Jewish community in Germany in the early 1930s, to help Jews already being affected by Nazi persecution through loss of jobs and other forms of oppression. In 1939, The Blue Card was reestablished in the United States to continue aiding refugees resettling in America. After the Holocaust, the mission of the organization was expanded to help survivors of the Shoah from all European countries. It continues its work to this day, providing services and assistance to Holocaust Survivors - most of whose live at or near the Federal poverty level.
