Simone Weil Lipman papers
The Simone Weil Lipman papers consist of biographical materials and photographs documenting Lipman’s work rescuing Jewish children with the Œuvre de Secours aux Enfants (OSE) in Rivesaltes, Poulouzat, and Châteauroux during the Holocaust and caring for child survivors at the le Petit Monde children’s home near Paris after the war.
Biographical materials include identification papers and education and employment records in Lipman’s assumed name (Simone Werlin) and attestations documenting her work rescuing and caring for Jewish children with the OSE at Rivesaltes and Châteauroux during the Holocaust.
Photographs depict prisoners, buildings, volunteer resident social workers, children, and scout troops at the concentration camp at Rivesaltes; children and staff at the OSE children’s home in Poulouzat; and children and staff at the Petit Monde children’s home near Paris.
