How else can you help? Adopt a diary!

NIOD’s extensive diary collection is a unique source which allows readers to experience the years of the Occupation through the eyes of a variety of writers. From children to the very old, from city dwellers to rural residents, from Jewish people in hiding to Eastern front fighters, from Indian camp prisoners to forced laborers in Germany: these witnesses to war, male and female, rich and poor, entrusted their experiences to paper. We are working hard to realize our ambition to render the experiences and reflections of the diarists accessible to a wide audience from June 2018.

We are also seeking volunteers who want to help NIOD by transcribing one or more of the journals so that we can make them digitally accessible.
