The collection consists of a photocopy of a journal, written in German, by Therese (Tesi) Wertheim, originally of Stuttgart, Germany. The journal was written immediately post-war and describes Tesi's experiences between May 10, 1940, when the Germans invaded Enschede in the Netherlands, and April 3, 1945, when the town was liberated by the Canadians. In her journal she describes the arrest of her son, Martin, who was killed at Mauthausen in October 1941, anti-Jewish legislation, life in in the underground in Enschede, and the aerial attacks on the city. The collection also includes an English translation, completed by Tesi's nephew, Dr. Martin Sichel, and Dr. Sichel's family history in which he describes immigrating to the United States from Stuttgart in 1937.
