The Tauber Holocaust Library archives house personal papers, government records, photographs,
and artifacts as part of its archival collections. Personal papers document
the individual experiences of victims and survivors of the Holocaust. German
government records provide insight into government-sponsored actions of persecution
and deportation; documents published by post-war Allied occupying forces reflect
post-war conditions and treatment of German nationals. Photographs include
a collection of Nazi press photographs, scenes of deportation, and a large
collection of US Army Signal Corps photographs of the liberation of concentration
camps. The Tauber Holocaust Library’s collection of artifacts includes items of survivors of camps
and a large collection of Nazi regalia.

The historical pamphlet collection spans the years 1919-1983. The bulk of the
collection is comprised of pamphlets published between 1938 and 1946. Pamphlets
are published in several languages, including English, German, Dutch, Czech, French, Polish, Russian, Italian,
Yiddish, Hebrew and Spanish. Subject topics are vast and focus on various aspects
of World War II and the Holocaust.
The pamphlet collection is a rich resource for tracing events contemporaneous
to the war years. It documents the world’s reaction to events in Nazi Germany
as they occur, and illustrates the type of access to information that was available
to those outside of occupied Europe.

is comprised of magazines and newspapers from the Holocaust Era. Spanning the
years 1928-1947, they include Nazi organ publications; resistance periodicals

interviews, and autobiographies. The accounts are those of survivors of labor
camps and death camps, refugees, hidden children and other individuals who

came from many European countries, and their accounts document a variety of
experiences, including persecution, occupation, deportation, camp life, liberation,
and post-war experiences.
