Scope and Content

The collection contains the documents collected by Judge Ben-Itto during years of research for her book The Lie That Wouldn't Die: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. The book tells the story of those who forged the Protocols, distributed it around the world and used it as an antisemitic weapon. It also pays tribute to those who exposed and disproved it; with special emphasis given to the two major trials, both initiated in 1934 by Jewish communities in Switzerland and in South Africa against local Nazi distributors of the document.
