Document | Accession Number: 2017.98.33

Institut d’Etudes du Judaïsme transcripts consist of transcripts of oral history interviews conducted as part of several documentation projects regarding the Jewish community in Belgium before, during and after World War II. Betty Garfinkels and Max Gottschalk conducted oral history interviews with Belgian Jews and Belgian rescuers for the Centre National des Hautes Etudes Juives de Bruxelles (CNHEJ) between 1964 and 1973. At the same time, Rivka Banitt from the oral history department at the Institute for Contemporary Judaism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem conducted a series of interviews with Belgian Jews, and the CNHEJ received copies. Bernard Suchecky and Daniel Dratwa conducted another oral history project in the early 1980s for the Institut Universitaire d’Etudes du Judaïsme (successor organization to the CNHEJ). Topics include Jewish refugees in Belgium, the German occupation of Belgium, resistance, rescue, hidden children, the Jewish underground, the Association des Juifs de Belgique, and the Comité de Défense des Juifs.
