The Jewish Labor Committee was founded in New York City in 1934 for the purpose of organizing opposition to nazism and fascism and providing assistance to the victims of fascist regimes. During World War II, the committee maintained close relations with European resistance movements and was able to rescue several thousand labor and socialist activists and their families.

This collection is a microfilm copy of a small portion of the records located at the New York University Library. It includes correspondence, newsletters, and newspaper clippings.
