The National Foundation on the Resistance (formerly the Centre for Documentation and Research on Resistance) or NFR), founded in 2002, identifies, collects, stores and maintains data on the resistance. It initiates and supports historical research related to the theme. Similarly, the NFR supports and facilitates the preservation of collective memory. The NFR works under the supervision of the Department of State. It makes an appeal for donations of documents, books and objects that link with the Second World War.

Archival and Other Holdings

The Foundation has carried out research on Holocaust era assets at the "Archives Nationales". Of great interest are the databases compiled by the Foundation on the Jewish community and their assets.
