Images of American Jewish Women and World War II: The stories and documents of American Jews who lived through World War II, as well as the materials they saved from the war years, are in danger of being lost forever. The Jewish Women’s Archive is dedicated to uncovering, chronicling, and transmitting to a broad public the rich history of American Jewish women. One of the first Jewish organizations to recognize and invest in the potential of the Internet for academic, cultural, archival, and educational purposes, JWA continues to use technology to collect and share Jewish women's stories. Its innovative website, jwa.org, provides free access to a wide range of resources on American Jewish women, past and present, celebrated and unknown.
At the end of the Second World War, U.S., British, and Soviet military forces divided and occupied Germany. Also divided into occupation zones, Berlin was located far inside Soviet-controlled eastern Germany.
