Document | Accession Number: 2012.151.1

Documents, photographs, and a personal narrative regarding the Holocaust experiences of Aizik Eisen and his two grandaughters Julia and Tola Weinstock in Lwów, Poland [Lviv, Ukraine] and the assistance their family received from Lusia Nowicka, a non-Jewish Polish woman who hid them. Included is a post-war manuscript written by Aizik about his Holocaust experiences. The manuscript is in Yiddish, and includes an English translation. Documents include Aizik’s former concentration inmate identification card, his United States Declaration of Intention form, and naturalization certificate. Also included is a memorial document dedicated to family lost in the Holocaust, and a copyright registration form by Julie Keefer (née Weinstock) for Aizik’s personal narrative “The Grandfather of the Two Grandchildren in the time of the Murder of Hitler, 1941-1945.” Photographs include depictions of Aizik after the war in the Tyler/Wegscheid displaced persons camp with his granddaughters Julia and Tola and Luisa Nowicka, the woman who hid them. There is also one wartime photograph of Julia taken when she was a hidden child.
