This report publicizing the Jewish Free Loan Societies, or kassas, sponsored by the JDC in Poland, demonstrates the organization’s cutting-edge deployment of avant-garde aesthetics in promoting its mission. With a bold, streamlined font and minimal text centered on the page, the report balances short, declarative statements and photomontages that incorporate Vishniac’s images, as well as the work of other photographers, to boldly illustrate the economic conditions faced by Poland’s Jews.
