Also in Chaim Kozienicki collection
These collections contain materials related to the Holocaust experiences of the Kozienicki family. Some of these materials may be combined into a single collection in the future.
The papers consist of 71 photographs relating to the Kozienicki family before World War II in Łódź, Poland, immediately after liberation in Sweden, and in Atlit camp after arriving in Palestine. Also included in the papers are a photograph album and three identification cards issued to Chaim Kozienicki by the government of Palestine.
The papers consist of two postcards to Chaim Kozienicki, who was living in Palestine, from Mala Maroko, his girlfriend who was living in Malmö, Sweden. She sends him best wishes for the Jewish New Year and provides news about mutual friends. The postcards are addressed to "Josef Rodlepmurt" which is "Josef Trumpeldor" spelled backwards.
