Please join us for a Virtual Roundtable co-hosted by the Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University and the Chabraja Center for Historical Studies.

More than Parcels: Wartime Aid for Jews in Nazi-Era Camps and Ghettos explores the horrors of the Holocaust by focusing on the systematic starvation of Jewish civilians confined to Nazi ghettos and camps. The modest relief parcel, often weighing no more than a few pounds and containing food, medicine, and clothing, could extend the lives and health of prisoners. For Jews in occupied Europe, receiving packages simultaneously provided critical emotional sustenance in the face of despair and grief.
