Nuns put it on Eva Rich's neck and told her that it would save her life. Given to Eve Rich by a group of nuns.
The nuns gave this blouse to Eva Rich after they could no longer hide her. They sought to make her appear to be a Polish peasant rather than a Jew. She wore the blouse under her clothes while in Majdanek. Given to Eve Rich by nuns who had hid her during the Holocaust.
Contains a photograph of Eve Rich as a child; two photographs of a camp after liberation; a postwar photograph of Eve Rich with Nathan Rich, the man who would become her husband; two telegrams received by the donor aboard the "S.S. Marine Flasher," June 1948; and an obituary for Col. Bernard McKahon, who helped liberate Majdanek, where Eva Rich was imprisoned.
