Also in Anna Gure collection
Collection of photographs and documents concerning the experiences of Anna Gure (Gurvich), who worked with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) in a Munich DP camp (possibly St. Ottilien); one postwar document issued by the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in Bavaria, dated December 5, 1945, stating that she had been a former prisoner at Stutthof; and one Swiss Red Cross document with the results of a chest x-ray. The collection also includes a caricature of a HIAS worker created by a Hungarian refugee.
The collection documents the post-war experiences of Anna Gure (born Anna Gurvich), originally of Kaunas, Lithuania. Documents include a certificate issued by the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in Bavaria stating that Anna was a former prisoner at the Stutthof concentration camp and a Swiss Red Cross document regarding the results of a chest x-ray. Photographs include depictions of Anna in her Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) uniform, likely in the Sankt Ottilien displaced persons camp.
