Stanford J. Shaw collection
- Credit Line
- Gift of Stanford J. Shaw, 1995.
The Stanford J. Shaw collection consists of photocopied archival documents assembled by Shaw during the research he conducted for his book "Turkey and the Holocaust." Shaw located most of these documents in what he described as the “uncataloged archive” of the Turkish Consulate-General and the Turkish Embassy, both in Paris, France. The documents that he copied were primarily case files and related documentation about Turkish Jewish individuals and families who resided in France during the German occupation (1940-1944), and who sought assistance from Turkish diplomats to prevent their arrest by the Nazis, or once that had happened, to arrange for their release.
