Herbert Block, an ESLI ..., 15 June 2013 [cached]
Herbert Block, an ESLI adviser, urged in one such email, sent March 15, that the social welfare conference be postponed so that governments and nongovernmental organizations could have more time to compile meaningful reports.
"While the needs of Nazi victims are immense, and they are aging, we do not need to quickly just have a conference that merely restates that and accomplishes nothing practical and concrete to benefit their condition," wrote Block, an assistant executive vice president at the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
Block added that "there should be some parallel discussions about the future plans for and direction of ESLI."
Block declined to speak about ESLI on the record.
