Kurt Hach collection
Consists of one folder of handwritten (via fax) memories of the wartime experiences of Mr. Kurt Hach, originally of a small coastal town near Hamburg, Germany. Mr. Hach describes the story of the ships populated by prisoners, which were bombed in the harbor of Lübeck in May 1945, as it was told to him by a German naval officer who had been present. He also describes his wartime memories, including smuggling food and the aftermath of Allied air raids; as well as learning in the 1980s that his mother was Jewish.
