The Duke University Libraries Digital Collection group has gone above and beyond with this fine collection documenting the human rights activism of Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer in 1970s and 1980s Argentina. The collection draws on correspondence, project files, subject files, and publications from his papers held at Duke's David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Rabbi Meyer lived in Buenos Aires for three decades, and during his time there he spoke out against the human rights abuses perpetrated under the military junta. He successfully negotiated the release of Jacobo Timerman and then returned to the United States to work on the plight of marginalized groups there. Visitors can look over the rotating items on the collection homepage to get a flavor of the documents here. Afterwards, they should use the tabs on the site to explore the collection by subject, document type, date, or language. Visitors are encouraged to sign up for the RSS feed here as well.
