Archive Collection

Scope and Content

Typescript report into conditions at Westerbork concentration camp entitled 'Kollektive Arbeit einer Widerstandsgruppe'; also correspondence between members of Wiener Library staff and Professor David Cohen regarding the reliability of the report as a historical document, including a short paper on the subject, 1944-1959.

Administrative / Biographical History

Camp Westerbork was a World War Two concentration camp in Hooghalen, ten kilometers north of Westerbork, in the northeastern Netherlands. Its function during the Second World War was to assemble Dutch Jews for transport to other Nazi concentration camps.

This report was apparently produced by a member of a resistance group asssociated with the camp by the name of Bettleheim. Nothing further is known about him.
