A Personal Connection to this Work

For Judy Wolf, who then worked for the women’s division of the American Jewish Congress, aiding Jews in crisis was a part of her job, but she describes her decision to help Soviet Jewry as personal as well as professional. Her knowledge of history, particularly the history of the Holocaust during World War II, also made a difference. Like many Jews of her generation, she was aware that American Jews could have done more to save European Jews during the Holocaust and was determined not to make the same mistake.
