February 25, 1946.

To Friends and Organization:

I have just received a four-page detailed report od the utmost importance about the fate of various leaders od the Hungarian Feminists Organization (working for the past half century for peace, women’s rights, and other progressive causes), conditions in Hungary, and the revival of the women’s movement. As soon as I have translated it, I shall send you a copy.

In the meantime, however, I beg you to send immediate assistance – financial and food and clothing packages – to the following surviving leaders of the Feminists Organization whose addresses I have just received in the above-mentioned report.

Conditions in Hungary have reached such fantastic proportions that I cannot emphasize sufficiently that those give twice who give quickly. Please follow suggestions contained in my earlier appeal for Jane Dirnfeld. Send money through your bank, packages through your post office and not through commercial firms many of which swindle the public.

The addresses are:

Dr. Charlotte Steinberger (the second woman physician in Hungary; the first to receive her medical education in Hungary.)

Bethlen Gábor utca 25.

Pesthidegkút (near Budapest)


Miss Janka Gergely (one of the pioneer organizers of the feminist movement.)

II. Guyon Richárd utca 8.



I would appreciate hearing from you what you are able to do to help them.
