With increased emigration beginning in , the institutions of Jewish DP life began to disband and the various central committees representing Jewish DPs in Germany, Austria, and Italy were dissolved by the end of Almost all of the DP camps in all three countries were closed by A small number of items also document activities of the revived Jewish communities in the city centers of Munich, Germany Subseries 15, Subsubseries C , and Vienna, Austria Subseries 1, Subsubseries K.
Many of the posters use not only language but also color, graphic design, and pictorial and figurative elements to engage their audience with calls to entertainment, lectures, protests, and commemorations. Whereas the majority of items are posters advertising events and communicating news and announcements, scattered items are of a different nature, including technical drawings, charts, maps, and children's artwork.
Only Series III Austria contains items dating from after , to as late as , all related to organizations in Vienna e. Please note that item numbers begin anew in each series, and reflect the posters' respective countries of origin, i. Duplicate items are labeled with small letters following the item number, e. Item GER. Fifteen items in the collection are double-sided , i. In these instances, the two sides of the item are each described as a separate poster but are assigned the same item number, with the addition of "r" recto or "v" verso to distinguish them.
The designation "double-sided" also appears in the physical descriptions. The two sides are always listed in sequence according to the item number, recto followed by verso. Since it sometimes happens that one of the sides pertains to an organization or entity different from the heading under which the item has been placed, cross-references have been inserted as needed. The collection is arranged in three series, corresponding to the three YIVO collections from which the posters were drawn, namely, RG Within each series, the posters are grouped according to the entity responsible for their creation.
The specific arrangement of those entities into subseries reflects the series structure found in each corresponding collection of records, with all of the headings given in the same sequence as in the records, even when the poster collection does not contain any material relating to a particular heading. For that reason, some subseries in the collection are empty. In all three series the following three major groupings of items can typically be distinguished: 1 the Jewish Central Committee in the respective country; 2 individual DP camps, arranged alphabetically by camp name; and 3 organizations that operated throughout the camps, often arranged alphabetically by name of organization.
An exception to this pattern in the case of Germany is that besides the alphabetically-sequenced grouping for camps in the American Zone, there are two separate small subseries toward the end related to camps in the British Zone Bergen-Belsen and in Berlin Schlachtensee, in the American Zone. The arrangement for Austria Series III is slightly different: in that case, the first subseries, devoted to organizations, includes the Jewish Central Committee, integrated with the others in alphabetical sequence; and the individual camps follow in the second subseries.
The title for each individual poster in the inventory list below is first provided in English, with a title in the poster's original language and script following in parentheses. The English title is used for alphabetization. Most English titles are direct translations of poster text, or paraphrases incorporating translations of key words and phrases; for posters with limited or unclear text, a descriptive title was constructed.
The notes following each poster listing provide additional details, including language information, dimensions height x width , poster material, and method of creation handpainted, printed, etc. The placement of individual items is sometimes ambiguous. For instance, items pertaining to events at specific DP camps that also represent the activities of larger organizations e. Jewish National Fund; Poale Zion have typically been placed under the heading for the camp, rather than the organization. In the case of items relating to events co-sponsored by two or more groups, the item has simply been placed under the heading for one of the named entities, and a note about the other s included in the description.
Schwarz RG Schwarz Papers. The posters and supplemental files in this collection were received together with the records of displaced persons camps and centers in Germany, Italy, and Austria, in the course of a wide collection project begun by YIVO in Europe in The aim of the project was to locate and collect archival materials on the Holocaust and the post-war years of Jewish revival in Europe.
The history of the Jewish displaced persons figured prominently in this project.

Many items subsequently received conservation treatment. For detailed background, please consult the historical note for that collection.
