JHSUM Copyright Statement


The images that are part of The Flickr Commons have no known copyright restrictions, indicating that the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest  (JHSUM)  is unaware of any current copyright restrictions on the works displayed, either because the term of copyright may have expired and not been renewed or because we believe no copyright restrictions apply. The user of the images must understand that JHSUM cannot guarantee that your private use of the images on The Commons will not violate the rights of unidentified copyright holders, and the JHSUM cannot be responsible for any liability resulting from your use of these images.

In general, the photos in our collections are meant to be used for personal, educational or research purposes. JHSUM is committed to making our collections of images available to the public for personal research and enjoyment; however, it is JHSUM’s policy to charge reproduction fees to obtain a high resolution file for commercial use. These fees help pay for  our ongoing efforts to care for our collections. If you are interested in commercial use of our images, or information about obtaining high quality reproductions of those images, please visit our web site at
