The Rose Henriques Archive
The Nazi persecution of Germany's and Europe's Jews aroused the interest and compassion of Rose Henriques at an early stage. In 1943 she found an opportunity to become actively involved in planning for the end of the war by joining the Jewish Committee for Relief Abroad (JCRA).
The JCRA had as one of its chief goals the establishment of the JRU – an active service unit for carrying out welfare work among the surviving remnant of European Jewry in Germany. The 80 boxes of material which document the activities of this unit are now accessible digitally and on microfilm in the Wolfson Reading Room.
