Lederer and Bruck Families Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2004.7.2
Collection Summary
Home movies of the Lederer and Bruck families in Plana Nad Luznici, Pacov, and Stechovice, Czechoslovakia [Southern Bohemia]. Robert and Rose (Bruck) Lederer had two children, Nina (b. 1930) and Peter (b. ca. 1933). Paul and Blanka (Bruck) Heller (Rose's youngest sister) rented a room from Mr. Blazek in Plana after Jews were no longer allowed to work in Czechoslovakia. When the Hellers were sent to Terezin in 1942, Mr. Blazek hid the Bruck family home movies, pictures, vase, and figurines. Paul never returned from the front with the Czech Army; Blanka survived Auschwitz and retrieved the family heirlooms. The films were donated to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum by her daughter Gabrielle Reiter Rosberger.
