Otto Wolf and Felicitas Garda papers

Document | Accession Number: 1995.A.0917

The Otto Wolf and Felicitas Garda papers consists primarily of a four volume diary describing the lives and activities of the Wolf family from the time they entered hiding in 1942 to escape the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia until their liberation in 1945. The first three volumes are written by Otto Wolf. Otto’s entries describe meals, weather conditions, the state of the family’s shelter, prayer, interactions with rescuers, dramatic developments, and occasional news of the war. After Otto’s arrest, Felicitas took it upon herself to carry on the diary entries. Her entries imitate Otto’s style and describe his arrest, the family’s concerns about his fate, and their liberation, and she lists and thanks the people who helped them survive in hiding. The collection also includes six photographs of Otto Wolf and his family.
