The IISH has a unique and manifold collection of Yiddish material consisting of books, brochures, periodicals and pamphlets of the early Jewish socialist and anarchist movement in Eastern and Western Europe. In addition, the Institute has a large collection of Bundist (election) posters, photo's and prints, mainly from interbellum Poland. Next to this printed and visual material the IISH owns part of the Bund-archives viz. the incoming material from the Bund Foreign Committee in Geneva as well as material from the Central Office of the Bund in Geneva.
An illustrated guide to the collection is now available at www.iisg.nl/collections/yiddish/index.html.
