International Resources for Holocaust-Era Assets Research

International Resources for Holocaust-Era Assets Research | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
The International Research Portal is a collaboration of national and other archival institutions with records that pertain to Nazi-Era cultural property. These archival institutions, along with expert national and international organizations, are working together to extend public access to the widely-dispersed records through a single internet portal. The portal will enable families to research their losses, provenance researchers to locate important documentation, and historians to study newly accessible materials on the history of this period. This collaborative project was established to fulfill the 1998 Washington Conference Principles on Nazi-Confiscated Art, the 2000 Vilnius Forum Declaration and the 2009 Terezin Declaration, in particular on the importance of making all such records publicly accessible.

The portal links researchers to archival materials consisting of descriptions of records and, in many cases, digital images of the records that relate to cultural property that was stolen, looted, seized, forcibly sold, or otherwise lost during the Nazi-era. Cultural property documented in these records covers a broad range from artworks to books and libraries, religious objects, antiquities, archival documents, carvings, silver and more.

Library and Archives Canada Transfers Consular Files to Government of Lithuania - What's New - Library and Archives Canada

Library and Archives Canada Transfers Consular Files to Government of Lithuania
Ambassador of Lithuania to Canada to receive files covering period from 1924 to 1960

OTTAWA, June 1, 2011 – At the request of the Government of Lithuania, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is today transferring 1400 original consular files of Lithuanian Canadians to the Lithuanian State Archives. This move is in accordance with LAC's initiative to collaborate with peer institutions in determining the most appropriate place for a collection to reside.
"It is the role of Library and Archives Canada to look at our holdings and carefully assess whether certain parts belong in Canada's national archives or whether they belong in another institution," stated Dr. Daniel J. Caron, Librarian and Archivist of Canada. "In this case, it was clear that these files belonged first and foremost to the government and people of Lithuania. However, by digitizing the files to keep in our holdings, we are also ensuring that Canadians continue to have access to what is an important part of our country's cultural history as well."
The consular files were part of a donation made to LAC in 1982 by Mr. Jonas Zmuidzinas, who served as the Consul General of Lithuania to Canada from the 1960s to the 1980s.
Discussions between LAC and the Embassy of Lithuania in Canada determined that since the consular files in question involved advice and services to Lithuanians living in Canada, they should be held by the Government of Lithuania. The files are being accepted by the Ambassador of Lithuania, Her Excellency Ginte Damusis, at the Embassy of Lithuania in Ottawa.
Digitized versions of the files, which cover the period from 1924 to 1960, will remain part of LAC's holdings for future consultations by Canadians, including researchers and Lithuanian Canadians interested in their history.

Library and Archives Canada
The mandate of Library and Archives Canada is to preserve the documentary heritage of Canada for the benefit of present and future generations, and to be a source of enduring knowledge accessible to all, contributing to the cultural, social and economic advancement of Canada. In addition, Library and Archives Canada facilitates cooperation among communities involved in the acquisition, preservation and diffusion of knowledge, and serves as the continuing memory of the government of Canada and its institutions.

L'etoile jaune | USC Shoah Foundation Institute | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
Être Juif en France pendant l’Occupation :
La huitième ordonnance allemande du 29 mai 1942 rend obligatoire, en zone occupée, le port de l’étoile jaune en public pour les Juifs à partir de l’âge de six ans. Elle est une étape fondamentale dans le processus d’exclusion sociale qui frappe les Juifs de France depuis le premier statut du 3 octobre 1940 édicté par Vichy.

S’appuyant sur une série de témoignages personnels – audiovisuels ou écrits –, cette séquence pédagogique doit permettre une représentation plus concrète de l’impact social et psychologique de la persécution raciale.

Les documents rassemblés ici permettent de croiser diverses dimensions de l’événement : la démarche répressive des autorités allemandes et françaises, les sentiments mêlés de celles et ceux que frappent la mesure, l’éventail des réactions dans leur environnement quotidien, de l’indifférence apparente à l’hostilité avérée en passant par les témoignages de sympathie et les solidarités agissantes. A quel moment le marquage intervient-il dans le processus général d’exclusion des Juifs ? Comment agit-il chez les individus et sur les relations entre les individus ? Existe-t-il des moyens pour stopper ce processus d’exclusion ?

Niveau : Classes de 3ème et de 1ère dans le cadre du cours d’histoire. Cette séquence pédagogique s’insère dans le chapitre sur la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Elle peut intervenir en complément de la leçon sur la France sous l’Occupation ou de celle sur la Shoah.

Carnets de l'interprète de guerre - Elena RJEVSKAÏA : Editions Christian Bourgois

Carnets de l'interprète de guerre - Elena RJEVSKAÏA : Editions Christian Bourgois | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
À l'automne 1941, la jeune Elena Rjevskaïa s'engage auprès de l'Armée rouge pour devenir interprète. Suivant les batailles qui se succèdent en Russie, en Pologne et en Allemagne, elle accompagne les membres de l'état-major soviétique afin de traduire les documents dérobés à l'ennemi et d'interroger les prisonniers de guerre. C'est ainsi qu'elle entre dans Berlin au printemps 1945.
Si les combats armés ont cessé, la jeune femme se livre à une lutte pour la vérité. Elle est en effet le témoin privilégié de la découverte et de l'identification du corps d'Adolf Hitler. Mais le pouvoir soviétique, qui entend entretenir le mythe de la menace nazie, étouffe l'enquête.
C'est sur cette trajectoire hors du commun que revient ici l'auteur, dans ces mémoires qui éclaircissent plusieurs épisodes de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, leurs conséquences en Russie, et révèlent les détails d'une affaire politique longtemps gardée secrète.

World War II Mystery Solved in a Few Hours

World War II Mystery Solved in a Few Hours | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
The album held its secret for nearly 70 years. Crowd sourcing opened it up within hours.
As Tuesday dawned, what we knew about an anonymous photo album by a Nazi photographer was only what could be inferred from its 214 pictures (all but one uncaptioned). We could see he had amazing access: taking portraits of Russian and Jewish prisoners one month, standing just a few feet from Adolf Hitler the next. We knew he had been to the Eastern Front, we surmised that he worked for the Propagandakompanie and we guessed that the pretty woman in the album’s closing pages was someone special.

There was a striking divide in the album between his Eastern Front pictures, which ended with his convalescence somewhere, and the postcard pictures he took around the Bavarian countryside and in central Munich, when the young woman seemed always at his side.

It was as if war could somehow be partitioned from everyday life. And love.

Of course, that isn’t how war goes.

We now know that the photographer was Franz Krieger, a native of Salzburg, Austria, who lived until 1993. And we know that the woman was Frieda Krieger, his wife. She was killed on Nov. 17, 1944 — as was their 2-year-old daughter, Heidrun — when America’s 15th Air Force bombed Salzburg.

Compact Memory - Deutsch-jüdische Literaturgeschichte im Web

Jüdische Periodika sind für die Erforschung des Judentums seit der beginnenden Neuzeit ein eminentes Quellenreservoir, auf das die Jüdischen Studien immer wieder zurückgreifen. Ein gemeinsames Nutzungsproblem besteht darin, dass die Periodika schwer zugänglich und vollständige Jahrgänge nur an wenigen Bibliotheken zu finden sind. Von daher ist die Bereitstellung der jüdischen Periodika in digitalisierter Form ein dringendes Desiderat der weltweit aktiven Forschung. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Sondersammelgebiet Judentum der Universitätsbibliothek Johann Christian Senckenberg Frankfurt a. M. und der Bibliothek Germania Judaica Köln, die den umfangreichsten Bestand jüdischer Periodika in der BRD aufweisen, werden die wichtigsten jüdischen Periodika im deutschen Sprachraum im Internet zugänglich gemacht.
