The Jewish Resistance Collection

Jewish Resistance Collection Jewish Resistance Collection

This collection contains a range of materials including underground publications, both printed and mimeographed, by German Communist and French Jewish resisters to the Nazi regime before and during WWII; international post-war reports (governmental and non-governmental) documenting the persecution and extermination of Jews and the course of several Nuremberg trials; Nazi paraphernalia; and contemporary and post-war magazine and newspaper articles on Jewish resistance during the Holocaust. Clandestine publications included in the collection deal with a range of issues, from major wartime events to the activities of Jewish resistance organizations. One such publication, a German antifascist pamphlet from 1933, is cleverly disguised as an owner’s manual for an Electrolux vacuum cleaner. Materials are in various languages: English, French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Spanish, and Yiddish.
