Alexander Sonnenwirth collection

Collection
Collection Summary
Documents, photographs and correspondence illustrating the experiences of Alexander Sonnenwirth (donor's husband) born in 1923, in Oradea, Romania, and subsequently in 1944, interned in the Nagyvarad Ghetto [war-time Hungary]. From there he was deported to the concentration camps Flossenburg, Dora Nordhausen and Bergen-Belsen in Germany, the latter from which he was liberated. Included in the collection are correspondence from Alexander’s family in Nagvarad to him in Navybanya in 1944 and post-war documentation that Alexander was trying to secure educational opportunities in Germany and then ultimately in the United States, when he immigrated in 1949. His immediate family did not survive.
