From the end of 1940 until early 1943, Jews in Warsaw were cut off from news of what was happening around them. Nonetheless, many were aware of the Final Solution as it was being implemented, and had the opportunity to hide. In this session, we will appreciate the work of the archivists who recorded and disseminated information, providing future generations with an historical resource that is without peer.
