Summary/Abstract: A number of questions about the hiding and extraction of the documents collected by the Oneg Shabbat group have arisen since the discovery of the first part of the Ringelblum Archive at Nowolipki Street 68. Using the documents stored in the Archive of the Jewish Historical Institute (Żydowski Instytut Historyczny, ŻIH), this article answers some of those questions by reconstructing the course of the hiding and the post-war search for the Oneg Shabbat archive, conducted by the Central Committee of Polish Jews (Centralny Komitet Żydów Polskich, CKŻP) and the Central Jewish Historical Commission (Centralna Żydowska Komisja Historyczna). This reconstruction also facilitates formulation of a new hypothesis concerning the ‘third part’ of the Archive, purportedly hidden in April 1943 on the premises of the ‘brushmakers’ workshop’.
