Regina and Halina Goldwag papers

Document | Accession Number: 2014.426.1

The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of Regina (née Zak) Goldwag and her daughter Halina (later Halina Rosenberg), both of Warsaw, Poland. Both women survived the war under the false identities of Polish non-Jews Jadwiga and Halina Orlowska. Documents of Halina Goldwag include wartime documents under the false identity used while she was a forced-laborer in several concentration camps in Leipzig, immigration papers, and restitution documentation. Photographs include pre-war family photographs of the Zak and Goldwag families, post-war photographs of Halina and Regina in the displaced persons camp in Göppingen, Germany, and depictions of Regina and Halina’s immigration to the United States onboard the SS Marine Flasher in 1946.
