expand icon Administrative/Biographical History
The National Coordinating Committee was established in 1934 by the AJDC at the suggestion of the State Department.  The NCC was to maintain close links with the Intergovernmental High Commission for Refugees established at the League of Nations in 1933 to deal with the problem of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany.  The NCC's main function was to coordinate the relief work of affiliated private refugee agencies in the U.S.  The financial support of the NCC came mainly from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.  The NCC was succeeded in 1939 by the National Refugee Service which was formed to deal with the great increase in immigration from all countries of Central and Eastern Europe.  NCC officers included:  Joseph P. Chamberlain, chairman, who was at the same time the American member of the Intergovernmental High Commission for Refugees;  Paul Felix Warburg, treasurer;  Cecilia Razovsky, executive director and secretary.  There were about 15 affiliated organizations which dealt with the different categories of refugees.  These included the American Christian Committee for German Refugees, American Friends Service Committee, American Jewish Committee, American Jewish Congress, American Joint Distribution Committee, Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced German Scholars, German Jewish Children's Aid, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, National Council of Jewish Women.
