The full name of the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in the American Occupied Zone is printed on some central index cards. But many cards are missing the full name. Both variations are part of the central index, however.
The Central Committee in the US zone emerged from the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in Bavaria, which had been established in July 1945. At a conference in January 1946, over 100 DP representatives voted to expand the committee’s responsibility to encompass survivors in the entire US occupation zone. No distinction is usually made between the two committees, however, so references to the Central Committee also cover the predecessor committee that existed for half a year.
