Abstract / Summary
Brinton sent Balch letters from the Kulka family as well as papers from the Frommer family from Budapest, asking for aid in persuading the US Consul to get them visas. Brinton notes that the problem in attaining visas is quota numbers, rather than relationships in the US or finances. The Kulkas have not arrived in the US and Brinton questions whether their affidavits as friends are not good enough, since they are not the Kulkas’s relatives. Brinton sent a letter to the Prague consul on behalf of the Kulkas but assumes it will not help. Refugees from Nazism.
