Documents concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. cooperation with the YWCA of Great Britain in addition to materials concerning general YWCA work in Great Britain.

During the rise of Nazi Germany and continuing into World War II, there is concern regarding religious freedoms in Germany. Bulletins and pamphlets examine the effect the Nazi regime is having on Europe. Between the wars there is an effort to reach the British youth and services to aid the unemployed. The YWCA of the U.S.A. cooperates with the YWCA of Great Britain on war work and international service.
