Anna Koppich letters

Document | Accession Number: 1995.A.0229

The Anna Koppich letters are a series of letters totaling 33 pages written by Anna Koppich to her husband, Ferri in the days after her liberation from Auschwitz, between March 6th and March 23rd 1945. The letters describe in detail the events of her life that transpired between when her husband was sent to a labor camp sometime before 1943 until her liberation from Auschwitz in January 1945 and many are written on Auschwitz stationary. In the letters, Anna discusses her son George’s depression after Ferri was sent away, wearing a yellow star, their life in the Kolozsvàr ghetto and the sense of community among the Jews there, their transport to Auschwitz in cattle cars, her separation from her son upon arrival at the camp, and her various duties within the camp’s hospital.
