Section of a Jewish prayer book found after the war

Publication | Accession Number: 1986.33.3

Pages from a damaged Machzor, a Hebrew prayer book for the High Holidays, found by Miriam Novitch at Auschwitz concentration camp sometime after the war ended in May 1945. The prayer book was presumably owned by a Jewish man deported from Germany to Auschwitz in 1943. Miriam, a member of the Communist resistance, was interned in German occupied France from June 1943 until liberation in fall 1944. After the war and for the rest of her life, she dedicated herself to the research and preservation of Holocaust related materials.
