A fundraising advertisement for the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) reproduced this image with the caption: “A Bottle of Milk Brings Joy to the face of this child, one of 70,000 Polish school children fed daily with the aid of the Joint Distribution Committee. The J.D.C. also maintains clinics and summer health camps in Poland and Rumania. Illuminating is the story of the little girl who was discovered taking her cod liver oil capsules home. ‘Mother needs them more than I do,’ she explained.”
