American Jewish Committee Oral History Collection

Resource Type: 

Finding aid to The New York Public Library's American Jewish Committee-sponsored oral history collection: over 156,000 pages of transcripts and 6,000 hours of taped interviews with 2,250 informants. This incomparable repository of unique and unpublished primary source material for the study of what is often called “the American Jewish experience in the 20th century” is one of American Jewish culture’s most substantial monuments.

Out of this comprehensive collection of interviews, 350 of the transcripts have now been scanned and digitized; most of these are available both onsite at the Library and offsite. Visit to view them.
