Also in Charlotte Neufeld collection
The collection consists of an armband and a diary relating to the experiences of Charlotte (Sari) Ickovics (later Charlotte Neufeld) in the slave labor camp in Sommerda, Germany, during the Holocaust.
Aufsicht [Supervisor] armband issued to 24 year old Charlotte (Sari) Ickovics in 1944-1945 when she was an inmate of Sommerda slave labor camp in Germany. She worked in a munitions factory that assembled bullet casings. In 1944, she and her eight siblings were separated from their parents in the ghetto in Berehove, Czechoslovakia (Ukraine) and deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Sari and her sister, Irene, were sent to Gelsenkirchen concentration camp and, when the Allies neared the area, transported to Sommerda. She and Irene were liberated during a death march when their SS guards fled. Five of her eight siblings survived; her parents, a brother, two sisters and their children, did not.
