Cohen-Paraira Family Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2012.251.1
Collection Summary
Ellis Cohen Paraira is a Dutch Jew who survived in hiding from 1942 until the end of the war. She and her boyfriend wrote to each other in a diary that they passed back and forth through a resistance network. Her boyfriend did not survive, and the diary remains in her possession. The diary was recently published, and an Israeli film documenting her moving story aired in 2011. Ellis’s father David captured family life in Amsterdam before the war on film, and Ellis donated the 8mm black and white and Kodachrome home movies to the Museum.
