- United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Collection, Gift of Richard Olaf Brunvand
Contains a note written clandestinely on on scraps of paper by Olav Brunvand (donor's uncle), a Norwegian journalist arrested and imprisoned in the Rendsburg prison in Germany. The note was written using materials snuck in by Hiltgunt Zassenhaus, who visited over a dozen prisons regularly in her capacity of censor. Zassenhaus agreed to sneak written pages out of the prison for Brunvand and buried them in her garden, retrieving them after the War in 1945 and returned them to Brunvand. Olav was liberated in 1945 in Denmark.
