Document | Accession Number: 2014.471.1

The collection includes a journal, documents, and photographs illustrating the experiences of sisters Esther and Helen (b. 1918) Mermelstein, born in Cinadievo, Czechoslovakia [present-day Ukraine] and deported to the Munkacs ghetto in April 1944, and then in June 1944 to a series of concentration camps including Auschwitz, munititions factory Christianstadt, a sub-camp of Gross Rosen, in Poland, and Bergen-Belsen in Germany where they were liberated. They were then sent to Karlstad, Sweden to recuperate. The journal is a multi-page letter from Helen to brother Heshkel [Alexander] and the photographs were taken pre-war in Sweden.
