Jewish Victims of Violence (1968)
Although the burden of evidence is that Jewish-owned establishments were not singled out for assault, losses suffered by Jews as a result of arson and looting were heavy. As victims of social upheaval, the Jewish merchants and property owners who sustained losses look first to the Jewish community for guidance and help.
Therefore, National Women’s League recommends:
That the organized Jewish community, through appropriate agencies, should assist Jewish business men wishing to remain or to continue their businesses in ghetto areas, or assist them to sell, transfer to a new location, obtain credit, obtain insurance, etc.
In addition, we recommend that efforts be made to obtain various forms of aid through governmental agencies and other resources offering counsel, loans and grants, disaster relief and the like, to all victims of violence.
