FDR Library Launches Holocaust Project


The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum has launched Henry Morgenthau, Jr. Holocaust Collections: A Curatorial Project, which will bring together Holocaust documents dispersed in various collections throughout its archive.

The papers of Rudolph Vrba, who, at 19, escaped from Auschwitz-Birkenau, and was one of the first to write of the Nazi plan to exterminate Europe’s Jewish populations, have recently been added to the FDR library collection, and will be one of the major resources for this project.
