Bela Trebitsch collection
Consists of copies of correspondence and poetry written by Bela Trebitsch, a Hungarian man who converted to Christianity during the war, spent most of the war in a forced labor battalion, and was deported to Bergen-Belsen in January 1945. The correspondence and poetry, written from Bergen-Belsen in 1945, describes his search for his daughter, Valeria, who had also been deported into Germany. Also includes copies of his forced labor diary and of correspondence Bela wrote to his family in Budapest after his liberation from Theresienstadt. In June 1945, while still at Theresienstadt, Bela contracted typhus and passed away before reuniting with his family.
