Established in 1995, OSA, www.osaarchivum.org, at Central European University is an archival and research institute focusing on the history of communism, the Cold War, and their afterlife as well as the documentation of contemporary human rights violations. Our traditional archival holdings currently comprise approximately 7,000 linear meters of records, among which are: the extensive archive of the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) Research Institute; papers of political, cultural, and counterculture personalities from the Cold War Era to the present; and several major series of Soviet, Polish, and Hungarian underground publications. Other holdings include the records of the UN Expert Commission on Investigating War Crimes in the Former Yugoslavia, the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights (IHF), Index on Censorship, Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), and several fonds of the Open Society Foundations for which we serve as the official archives.
