    Scope and Contents

    This collection consists of lists of Jews, and a broadside aimed at Jews, produced during World War II.
    The oldest is a bound list of copies of typed correspondence between Gestapo and SS Headquarters in Berlin, and Gestapo Headquarters in Osnabruck, February 12, 1937 to September 15, 1938, which list the names of Jews who have emigrated and have therefore been stripped of their citizenship with instructions that the individuals be arrested should they attempt to reenter the country.
    The second is a broadside dated September 26, 1940, and issued by Mayor Gaston Chardin of the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne and that advises all Jews in the city to report to City Hall with their identificaiton documents by October 2.
    And the third, which consists of two documents, probably produced at the end of the war, lists Jewish doctors in Slovakia who fought as partisans and were killed or murdered in German concentration camps.
