This chapter mainly discusses the relief to refugees and how they were looked after. It describes the establishment of the C.E.R, the staff involved in the operations and the centres that provided relief to the refugees. Resources were limited, and prices for food and fuel were rising. The consulate managed to cope with these difficulties with the general principle that a refugee could draw either subsidy or rations. The consulate also laid out rules regarding the granting of relief. The schemes were generally functional, though they discovered scams. The rapid fluctuations in currency exchange rates also posed challenges to relief work.
