Records from the various children’s homes and the main office of the Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants (France). Persons now living in the US, formerly cared for by OSE, made a written request in 2004 to have their files at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Archives received the microfilmed collection via the United States Holocaust Museum International Archival Programs in May 2009.
