Center for Jewish History - Digital Collections

Ongoing digitisation project of the holdings of the New York Center for Jewish History. Many archives in the center document the experiences of Jewish migrants from Europe in America or relate directly to European Jewish history: "Contained within the initial catalog are diverse and eclectic listings that represent the unique strengths of each of the Center's five Partners. Examples range from the American Sephardi Federation's collection of French engravings, to the American Jewish Historical Society's Lower East Side Photograph Collection, to the Leo Baeck Institute's Collection of German Decrees from the 16th and 17th Century, to the YIVO Institute's rare Hebrew and Yiddish books and children's books, to the Yeshiva University Museum's Abe Grubère collection of fashion designs from the 1940's and 1950's."
