About this Item

Small 8vo; Munich, Central Historical Commission, 1947. First Edition. Paper Wrappers, small 8vo, 112 pages. Includes 10 photos with captions in English & Yiddish, & 2 maps. One of 8000 issued. In Yiddish with English Cover, table of contents, & photo captions. Important journal lasting 10 issues which written & published by Jewish DPs themselves to document crimes and survival in the Holocaust. The publisher's decision to include the English table of contents, probably in part to insure the journal's use in future war crimes trials, makes these first hand accounts especially user-friendly today, almost 60 years later. Robinson & Friedman #1247: "The Historical Commission [was] established in 1945 under the auspices of the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in the U. S. Zone. [It] Ceased operations early in 1949. Details of the activities of the Munich center can be found in No. 1247 [Fun Letsten Churbn]." Hagit Lavsky notes in the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust (Gutman, ed., 1990, p. 383) that, "Commemoration and documentation projects [by Jewish DPs] included the work of the Tsentraler Historisher Komisiye (Central Historical Commission), established in December 1945 by the Central Committee in Munich, to assist in bringing Nazi criminals to trial. A network of regional committees was set up under the commission's auspices whose task it was to take evidence and collect documentary material, including material on DPs. In August 1946, the commission published the first issue of the monthly FUN LETZTEN HURBAN." Published under DP-Publications License US-E-3 OMGB, Information Control Division.
