These experiences include deportation to labor and concentration camps, hiding “underground” in Holland and Germany, internment in Italy, slave-labor in Russia, escape to Shanghai, China, and other war-time events. Discussion of their post-war experiences concerns years in displaced persons camps, internment on Cyprus, temporary residences in Sweden, England, and Israel, and resettlement in the United States. Also included are two interviews with U.S. citizens who worked with displaced persons after the war. The photographs document the families of the survivors before and immediately after World War II. Also included are color transparencies of the survivors photographed by Historical Society staff, December 1979 through February 1981.
