The Hannah Arendt Papers at the Library of Congress
"The papers of the author, educator, and political philosopher Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) are one of the principal sources for the study of modern intellectual life.

HOLOCAUST: The Untold Story
"...Although major American newspapers had been receiving reports of the mass extermination of Jews in Europe, the stories rarely reached the front pages, except in the Jewish press. Could a more aggressive press in the United States during World War II have saved lives? This exhibit dispels the myth that the Holocaust was a secret and explores the reasons why America's newspapers downplayed the horrifying reports from Europe."

Nazi and East German Propaganda - Anti-Semitism
"Propaganda was central to Nazi Germany and the German Democratic Republic. The German Propaganda Archive includes both propaganda itself and material produced for the guidance of propagandists. The goal is to help people understand the two great totalitarian systems of the 20th Century by giving them access to the primary material."

Labor & The Holocaust: The Jewish Labor Committee And The Anti-Nazi Struggle
"This exhibit [from 1997] presents a portfolio of a hundred photographs and documents from the JLC Collection. The text has been adapted from an article by JLC archivist Gail Malmgreen, originally published in Labor's Heritage (October 1991). The exhibit's seven pictorial sections take the viewer on a chronological journey, from the origins of the JLC, through its anti-Nazi activity of the 1930s, to early rescue efforts and wartime assistance to the anti-Nazi Underground, and then examines three aspects of postwar aid and reconstruction. A final section offers a bibliography of resources for further study."

The set includes 70 of the original 109 interviews that were conducted in 1946 and transcribed into English by Dr. David Boder...This site will integrate, in the near future, the transcriptions of the interviews, reproductions of the original wire recordings, maps, essays by scholars and survivors, papers of Dr. Boder, and other information from our archives, into a seamless, searchable, multimedia Web site."
