A short time after Warsaw was occupied by the Germans, the Jewish community organized a social welfare committee known as the Żydowska Samopomoc Społeczna (Jewish Social Self-Help), or the ZSS, in order to provide social assistance to the Jewish residents. Funding for the activities came primarily from the Polish branch of the Joint, which was also located in Warsaw.
