Description

The YIVO building in Vilna (which was located outside the ghetto) was converted into a processing center for ransacked Jewish libraries and archives from Vilna and the surrounding area. A group of twenty inmates from the Vilna Ghetto was taken each day to the YIVO building where selected collections were being prepared for shipment to the Institut der NSDAP zur Erforschung der Judenfrage in Frankfurt-am- Main.
