New Holocaust Museum in Brazil

JDC Archives congratulates the Jewish Federation of Parana and the Associacao Casa de Cultura Beit Yaacov on the inauguration of the Holocaust Museum of Curitiba, the first institution of its kind in Brazil. Curitiba is the capital of the Brazilian state of Parana, with some 1,000 Jewish families.

Images from JDCs extensive Photo Collection have been selected for display and for multimedia use in the new museum. We are delighted to participate in this ambitious and historic undertaking.

Dear Visitors,

Since the launch of our online database, the JDC Archives has been proud to offer the public free access to our digitized material. Our users can access records previously available only in person. Our online Text Collections have grown to 3.85 million pages, our Photo Collection to 76,000 digital images, and we have expanded our Names Index. We have also opened our Artifacts and AV Databases.

Now, for the first time, we are asking for your support. Your contributions will help us to further enrich our online offerings. Please donate today.
