There are collections of newspapers and magazines in Yiddish; Yugoslavian wartime newspapers; Hungarian wartime newspapers; German-Nazi prewar and wartime newspapers; Italian prewar and wartime newspapers; newspapers published by the French Resistance; American wartime and postwar newspapers; and British wartime and postwar newspapers. A special collection of Los Angeles-based newspapers, published in the 1930s and in the 1940s, reflects international affairs and the Jewish predicament in Europe as the National Socialists attained power in Germany. This collection is exhibited in the museum halls.

The wide spectrum of European and American media in this record group reflects regional and European explications of the interwar and wartime period and the developments in each. Prewar and wartime perspectives of various political forces are well represented within these materials, for example prewar Jewish (published in Polish) and Ukrainian periodicals represent the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, Polish-Ukrainian, Ukrainian-Jewish and Polish-Ukrainian relations in Eastern Galicia.

Materials in this record group includes periodicals, which are comprised of narratives, illustrative photo-publications, magazines, and informational bulletins.
