About the Unitarian Service Committee

Established in 1940 and led by Charles R. Joy, the Unitarian Service Committee (USC) was one of the most important US-based refugee organizations working in Europe during and following the war, assisting numerous refugee communities throughout the continent. The USC collected funds from many different American refugee organizations — including the Spanish Refugee Appeal of the Joint Antifascist Refugee Committee, led by Dr. Edward Barsky, a prominent New York surgeon and veteran of the Spanish Civil War.
