Yakob Langer collection
Consists of photocopies and transcripts from the collection of Yakob Langer, originally of Essen, Germany. Includes color copies of pages of Mr. Langer's diary, including his reaction to Kristallnacht, as well as a typed transcript of a letter written by Mr. Langer's father between November 1941 and April 1942. In the letter, he describes the family's emigration attempts, the death of his wife, and the impending transport east. The letter was saved by neighbors and given to Yakob, who had been able to emigrate from Germany, after the war. Also includes an audiocassette tape in which Yakob reads from portions of his diary.
