Adjustment of Displaced Persons

By Fred Berl

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1948

This is a report on an experience in casework relationship in which the displaced person emerges out of his group as an individual client. It is experience in an agency, which, as a part of its function, gives family services to resident Jewish immigrants in New York City. We want to limit this report to the meaning of the experience in the concentration camp as viewed against the needs of a helpful casework relationship. The purpose of this relationship is to help the immigrant as a stranger who wants to find a stable place in this country.
