Recognizing Vishniac’s skills as a narrator and lauding the “realistic” nature of his photography, this report advised the JDC board to commission him to produce films for the organization. The footage of Carpathian Ruthenia included in this exhibition is the result of plans outlined here. The report also underscores the value placed on securing publicity in American magazines and newspapers, suggesting ways in which Vishniac’s photographs, and thus the JDC’s mission, could be promoted to the American Jewish and secular national media.
