Boris Gurevich papers

Document | Accession Number: 2010.125.1

The Boris Gurevich papers contain letters written by Boris Gurevich to his siblings while he was serving as a captain in the Soviet Union’s Red Army between 1942 and 1944. Gurevich, a Latvian-born Jew, served in the Army from the outbreak of war in 1940 until he was killed in action near Kovel in 1944. In his letters, Boris enquires frequently about his family’s health and food availability and describes his situation as a student in military training and later, as a soldier. Many of his letters describe his own health, food rations, uniforms, and his daily activities in training and in his free time.
