Over the course of the three year HIAS archives project, we are selectively digitizing groups of records. In addition, a large group of Heritage photographs maintained at HIAS for decades will soon be available online. Please visit this site at the end of 2018 when the digital collections will be accessible online. As materials become available they will be announced on the project blog, ontherescuefront.wordpress.com
