Document | Accession Number: 2013.182.1

Consists of photographs, postcards, a photograph album, photographic negatives, documents, and postcards from the collection of Eva Weinberger Cohen, originally of Kusnice, Czechoslovakia [now Ukraine]. Though her family remained in Kusnice and was deported to Auschwitz, where only two sisters survived, Eva obtained false papers and posed as a Catholic in Budapest. She was able to obtain a spot on the Kastzner train and was deported to Bergen-Belsen in July 1944; she was released in December 1944 and sent to Switzerland. Includes pre-war family photographs; post-war photographs of Eva's surviving sisters Helena and Ruth; a post-war photograph album containing images from Switzerland; photographic negatives; and pre-war and post-war identity cards, personal documents, and correspondence.
