Avraham Polack collection

Document | Accession Number: 2011.270.1

The Avraham Polack papers contain letters relating to the Polack family in Haifa, Israel, and in particular Avraham Polack’s imprisonment with other Irgun and Lehi members in several British detention camps in Africa from 1944-1947. The letters provide detailed descriptions of his daily life within the camps and reflect Polack’s concern for his family. Other letters relate to Avraham’s continuing education while imprisoned as well as notifications and receipts for packages and educational materials that were sent to Avraham Polack during his imprisonment.

The papers also contain the correspondence of the Committee for Assisting the Families of Jewish Detainees and the Committee for the Eritrea Exiles and Their Families. These committees were founded by Baruch Moser.
