Revolutions: Women in World War II Resistance Movements: Images and Videos


About Images

It's so easy to find images on the internet, but that doesn't mean that you can freely use them without the permission of the creator / owner of the image, be it a photographer, an artist, a museum or other group, organization, or institution. Use the resources we provide below to find images you can freely use in your project. 

Please note: primary source documents including images are a reflection of the time and culture in which they were created and may contain language or images that are considered offensive today.

We recommend that you start your image search with the subscription database Britannica ImageQuest, which contains millions of images rights-cleared for non-commercial, educational use. 


If you're not sure about the usage rights of an image, please ask us for assistance!
