Donation of artifacts and literature #holocaust #general

Erika Gottfried

I have in my possession a small number of Nazi artifacts and literature brought home by my father after WWII, after he served in the military government in occupied Germany (he was in charge of de-Nazification of all schools, hospitals, churches, and voluntary organizations in Bavaria).  

He died several years ago and I'm trying to dispose of some of his possessions including these.  I don't want to keep them, but I don't want them to fall into the wrong hands, so selling them or donating them to a charity thrift store like Goodwill is out of the question for me.

But so far I have not been successful in finding a museum or archives that will accept them.  

Can anyone suggest an appropriate institution that would take them, or perhaps ideas of how I might dispose of them responsibly.
