Berl Grosser postcards

Document | Accession Number: 2015.355.1

Consists of a collection of handwritten and typed postcards and letters sent to Bernhard (Bernard/Berl) Grosser, originally of Kamionki Wielkie, Poland, but who was living in Milan, Italy. The postcards, sent from family and friends, mainly writing from Poland between 1938-1942, were used to update Mr. Grosser on their personal situation, attempts to immigrate, and discussion of relief packages. Unbeknownst to Mr. Grosser, his mother died in the late 1930s; the greetings from her on many of the postcards were included as his family attempted to shield him from this information.
