Summary/Abstract: In the years 2000-2003, cooperation between the Jewish Historical Institute –Scientific Research Institute in Warsaw (ŻIH) and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and financial assistance from the latter, made it possible to develop a new inventory of the Ringelblum Archive, also known as the Underground Archive of Warsaw Ghetto (ARG), one of the most precious sets of archive documents kept at ŻIH. Ringelblum Archive, containing source materials for the study of the history of the Holocaust of Jews in Polish lands during World War II, was compiles in Warsaw Ghetto in the years 1940-1943 thanks to Emanuel Ringelblum and his associates. In 1999, it was entered by UNESCO on the list of the world’s most important documents. Work on the new inventory made it possible to re-examine and describe the collection according to a uniform formula, containing basic information on the nature and content of individual documents. The Archive also received a new structure, referring to the original one, used by the „Oneg Szabat” team. The new ARG inventory will appear in print.
