The Archives are a resource for the GFH Museum’s educational programs and its exhibitions.
The “Yizkor” Hall exhibits artifacts from the GFH collection and artworks from the Art Collection.
The renovation and refurbishment of the room were made possible with the aid of the Claims Conference (Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany).
The room’s computers are outfitted with a search program enabling direct access to all the archives collections that have been digitized and catalogued.
Once you access the live connector, you will be able to listen to other callers’ own greetings.
When you hear someone you like, send her a message or ask to connect live. Male caller get a 30 minute free trial, which must be used in a period of seven days or less.
The Archives deal with the documentation of three main periods in the history of the Jewish People: between the two World Wars – youth movements, religious life, community life and culture; the fate of the Jewish people during WWII – in camps and ghettos, physical and spiritual Jewish resistance; and the Holocaust survivor community in postwar Europe.
