League of Nations, Archives 1933-1940

The League of Nations was conceived in 1919 during the aftermath of the tragedies and suffering caused by World War I. The archives of the League of Nations are a testimony to the will of the League's Member States to create the world's first intergovernmental organization for peace and cooperation, which led to a fundamental change towards an "institutionalization" of international relations. These unique archives attest to the efforts of interwar diplomats, officials and the first international civil servants on promoting cooperation between nations to guarantee peace and security.
