Jewish American Women and WW II

Help us uncover their stories and preserve their legacy

The Jewish Women's Archive is collecting oral histories, letters, photographs, and other objects that document the experiences of Jewish American women during the Second World War.

You can help.

  • Conduct an interview with a Jewish American woman who remembers WW II and/or collect photographs, letters, and other related documents.
  • Share a story, photo, scanned document, audio or video recording, interview transcript, letter, or other object.
  • Visit our online exhibit in Flickr Commons and join our "tag posse," helping to identify people in existing pictures, and contributing any further information about the people featured in the exhibit so far.
