    Film Provenance
    The five 16mm films were recorded by Louis and Harry Sommer when they visited their family Houmena (Humenne), Slovakia from Omaha, Nebraska in March 1932. Bernard and Emery Klein rescued the decaying films from their cousin, Beatrice Sommer, in the 1950s. The Kleins signed a release for the footage, ca. 1987, to The University of Michigan-Dearborn. Sidney Bolkosky at the University of Michigan-Dearborn sent a viewing copy to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in August 1991. The Kleins donated the original 16mm films to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2012.
