Amnesty International

In 1998, Pierre Sané, Secretary General of Amnesty International, described the character and significance of the microfiche edition as follows:
"1998 marks the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – the bedrock of contemporary human rights – and is a significant year for Amnesty International and human rights organizations throughout the world. The anniversary is a time both to look at what we have achieved, and what challenges lie ahead for the human rights community.
In this half century, Amnesty International has helped to enshrine human rights in international law, raised public and political awareness of those basic rights and the abuses which still take place, and worked with the ever growing number of grassroots human rights groups throughout the world. In marking the anniversary of the Declaration, Amnesty International is focusing on highlighting the risks faced by human rights defenders -- the people on the front line of human rights protection -- and demonstrating the popular support for the Declaration through our worldwide signature campaign. We are looking towards further strengthening the human rights movement in the next 50 years, and to make sure that ignorance of abuses can never again be used as an excuse for inaction.
For this reason, finding out about human rights violations and making those facts public is crucial, and the role of IDC is extremely valuable in making this information available in microfiche editions with comprehensive, annually updated inventories on CD-ROM."


Access
The microfiche edition is annually updated, and made accessible on item level by an online EAD finding aid and a printed guide listing all individual documents in this unique collection. The printed guide is also updated on a yearly basis. The printed guide is cumulated every five years.

Country Dossiers
The information in Amnesty International Reports and Country Dossiers is compiled, analysed and edited by volunteers and members of the staff of Amnesty International. The information comes from diverse sources and is collected on the basis of disciplined research. Background information is sifted from published studies, contemporary archives, press reports, and transcriptions of radio broadcasts. Legislation pertaining to the administration of justice in each country is quoted from official publications. Exhaustive interviews with former prisoners are conducted by Amnesty International researchers. Details on individual cases are verified by consulting experts and other international organizations. Where possible, Amnesty International sends missions to countries to meet government representatives, visit prisons, and conduct on the spot investigations.

Nazi Propaganda Periodicals in the Library of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

Source Materials on Modern German Anti-Semitism, National Socialism and the Holocaust

Nazi Propaganda Periodicals in the Library of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
Source materials on modern German anti-semitism, National Socialism and the Holocaust

In his award winning work, The Jewish Enemy: Nazi Propaganda During World War II and the Holocaust (Harvard University Press, 2006), Professor Jeffrey Herf of the University of Maryland wrote: “During World War II anyone in Nazi Germany who regularly read a newspaper, listened to the radio, or walked past the Nazi political posters between 1941 and 1943 knew of the threats and boasts of the Nazi regime about intentions to exterminate European Jews, followed by public assertions that it was implementing that policy. Claims of ignorance regarding the murderous intentions and assertions of making good on such threats defy the evidence, logic, and common sense. With confidence we can say that millions and millions of Germans were told on many occasions that the Jews had begun a war to exterminate the Germans, but that the Nazi regime was exterminating the Jews instead.”
Now in this new collection of Nazi Propaganda Periodicals from the Library of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research we are able to explore these themes in greater detail. Of the approximate 6100 volumes that comprise YIVO’s unique Nazi Propaganda Collection, 1293 where made available on microfiche ( Nazi Propaganda Literature in 2002. The new installment adds approximately 300 journals and newspaper titles to that collection.
Included in this new collection are a number of extremely rare publications from Nazi occupied Europe including, for example, Donareuropa published in Budapest from 1941–1944; Volk in Osten published in Bucharest, Romania (1941); the complete runs of the Verordungsblatt for Bohemia, Moravia and Luxembourg; two years of the Italien Beobachter (Rome, 1937–1938) and the Zurich based Schweizerische Monatshefte (1940–1944), among other titles. Altogether the Nazi Propaganda Periodicals collection includes materials from 17 countries, 14 of which were under direct Nazi occupation. While the vast majority of the publications are in German there are a significant number of French, Latvian, Estonian, and Russian titles, reflecting Nazi attempts to secure the cooperation of local populations.
As Zachary M. Baker, Reinhard Curator of Judaica and Hebraica at Stanford University pointed out in 1997, “the significance of YIVO’s Nazi propaganda collection lies not merely in its size, but also in the rarity –in numerous cases, the uniqueness –of the items it encompasses. Many of the titles in the collection are found in only a few American libraries.”

Archive of the State Commission for Slave Emancipation in the Netherlands Colonies, 1853-1856
National Archives of the Netherlands, The Hague

Background
Although slavery had been abolished in the British colonies as early as 1833, it persisted in the Dutch possessions in the East Indies and particularly their West Indies colonies of Surinam and the Antilles, which were plantation economies. No serious voices were raised for emancipation in either government circles or public opinion until the publication of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s classic Uncle Tom’s Cabin in the United States in 1852. Questions in the Dutch Parliament concerning the colonial budget for 1854 led the government to appoint a State Commission in November 1853 to investigate the situation of the slave population in the colonies and propose appropriate measures. Former minister of the Colonies and governor-general of the Netherlands East Indies, J.C. Baud, was named chairman and the members were drawn from the colonial civil service, parliament itself and representatives of commercial interests involved in slavery, including plantation owners.
The commission gathered material, heard witnesses and eventually produced two reports in September 1855 (on Surinam) and July 1856 (on the West Indies islands and West Africa, the Gold Coast, then still a Dutch colony) after which it was disbanded. The legislation the commission proposed remained, however, without immediate effect and the government and parliament would continue to wrestle with the question of slave emancipation until slavery was finally abolished on 1 July 1863.

The archive
The commission’s archive contains minutes of its meetings, correspondence, documentation assembled on the condition of the slaves in the various colonies, memoranda and interim reports by members and non-members. It has now been microfilmed by Moran Micropublications in cooperation with the National Archives of the Netherlands. The micropublication includes the two reports and their appendices, which were printed for parliament but never published, as well as a memorandum against the reports written on behalf of the slave owners of St. Martin in the West Indies.
