*** All proceeds will go to The Blue Card. ***

The Blue Card was established by the Jewish community in Germany in
the early 1930s, to help Jews already being affected by Nazi
persecution through loss of jobs and other forms of oppression.

Today, most of the Holocaust survivors served by The Blue Card live at
or near the Federal poverty level. Many of these survivors never
received any restitutions or pensions, or did not qualify to receive
any of the other payments administered by The Claims Conference. Some
live on small Social Security payments and, though they may be insured
under Medicare, they are unable to pay for Medigap coverage and
prescription drugs. Those who qualify for Medicaid often need the care
of specialists or drugs not covered by Medicaid, and are frequently
desperate for uncovered services such as dental care.

It is impossible for Holocaust survivors to receive such basic
services and assistance without The Blue Card’s help.
