Wilson · Sub-Fonds
Part of Collections

A collection of brochures, articles and other printed matters related to the issues of war, peace and international relations. The material contained in the collection span from roughly 1920 to 1950. In some cases, a file may contain a single descriptive brochure of little utility to the researcher, in others, an array of information that, while often of little academic interest, nevertheless provides an interesting perspective of the inter-war period and the post-war world. The vast majority of materials are in English.

Human Rights (1st Series)
SOA · Sub-Fonds · 1946-1957
Part of UNOG Registry First Period, 1946-1973

The sub-fonds consist of the records of the Division of Human Rights covering the period 1946 to 1957. The collection documents the wide ranging work of the Division not only in the drafting of the International Covenants on Human Rights with the Commission on Human Rights, but also in servicing the Sub-Commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities, the Sub-Commission on Freedom of Information and the Ad Hoc Commission on Questions of Prisoners of War.

The collection includes voluminous correspondence with individuals, groups and governments regarding violations and complaints related to human rights. It was the task of the Division to respond to these communications and to compile a summary for the Commission on Human Rights and to governments concerned. The records document the Division's work on the repatriation of prisoners of World War II, in addition to addressing the plight of survivors, refugees and displaced persons. One especially interesting series of these records is the documentation concerning victims of Nazi so-called scientific experimentation, compiled in an effort to assist these individuals in receiving compensation from the German government.
