Subcollection: Subject Matter

Extent: 99 files

Scope and Content: The bulk of this subcollection, which contains materials from 1942-1947, concerns the rescue and transportation of Jewish refugees during and after World War II from countries such as Bulgaria, Germany and Romania, as well as attempts to identify and locate survivors. The files contain lists of survivors, correspondence, shipping manifests, and cables.

Additionally, these records contain substantial material on passengers on the SS Drottningholm, an exchange ship which carried Jews from concentration camps, including Buchenwald, and on the SS Mefkure, a rescue ship bombed and lost at sea in 1944.
