Appendix 4: The Larissa Earthquake

Welfare Society for the Rehabilitation
of the Jews of Larissa
8 Thoukididou St., Larissa, Greece

To the Jewish Community of New York

Dear Brothers:

The City of Larissa and its surroundings have been struck by a terrible earthquake. Everything that has remained undamaged from the previous earthquakes, has been demolished by the new one. All the buildings crumbled and most of them are no longer habitable.

Panic-stricken, the inhabitants are afraid to enter their houses; they spend the nights in the Jewish clubs, outdoors, in tents, and in temporary shelters, or in the homes of their relatives.

Because of the prevailing cold weather and the incessant rain and constant earth tremors their plight is even more dramatic.

Lack of employment and entire stagnation in business have created such a state of affairs where we are unable to buy our daily necessities to keep our families alive. Therefore, our lives and that of our children are endangered, because of lack of shelter, clothes, and food.

We, therefore, appeal to your charitable feelings to assist us to stay alive, and to prove by deeds your brotherly willingness to offer us the help we need and which circumstances impose.

Trusting our appeal will not have been made in vain,

We remain,

Very respectfully yours, Larissa, March 11, 1957
The Executive Board of the Society
