The Nazi Scourge
Postal Evidence of the Holocaust
and the Devastation of Europe

Mail posted by Nazi officials, their allies, their collaborators, and most of all, their victims and opponents, along with some collateral material, document the catastrophe that befell Europe after Adolf Hitler assumed power in Germany on January 30, 1933. This exhibit entitled "The Nazi Scourge," explores each phase of Nazi tyranny and aggression, with particular attention to persecution and mass murder of European Jews.

Much of the exhibit's material has been reformatted and adapted from its original format so that it could be included in a number of new 2010 online exhibitions here at the Museum.

This Museum exhibition, entitled "Persecution and Flight," includes some of the material from the "Nazi Scourge" exhibition and is indicated so when applicable.

Please use the links below to follow the "Persecution and Flight" exhibition at the Museum of Family History, or simply start at the beginning and follow the "next" links on each web page. After you've finish with this exhibition, don't forget to visit the Museum's two "sister" exhibitions entitled "The Jewish Ghetto" and "Never Forget: Visions of the Nazi Camps."
