- United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Collection, Gift of Anne Kelemen
Consists of an autobiographical sketch of the early life of Anne Kelemen (Anne Kelemen Robitscher), originally of Vienna, Austria. She describes the lives of her extended family, including her parents, who perished at Belzec in 1942. Ms. Kelemen was sent to England on a Kindertransport in May 1939, and reunited with her sister, who was in England working as a domestic. She became a Zionist and tried to immigrate illegally to Palestine in 1946, with a group of concentration camp survivors. They were turned back within sight of Haifa and were sent to Cyprus, where she remained until 1948, when she was allowed to enter Palestine.
