We hold a large number of documents from the 1933-1935 Bern Trials in which our predecessor organisation, the Jewish Central Information Office played a significant role.
The Trials concerned the dissemination of the infamous antisemitic fabricated evidence of a so-called ‘Jewish world conspiracy’, commonly known as the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’.
Our founder, Dr Alfred Wiener, took part in strategy meetings to plan the prosecution of the case and was an observer of the final part of the proceedings. He played a significant role in the formulation of expert questions and made contact with numerous news agencies to organise the international reporting of the trial.
