Jack Marchick papers

Document | Accession Number: 1995.A.1108

The Jack Marchick collection comprises letters and photographs collected by Jack while deployed with the United States Army in Europe and in the years immediately following. The letters are written between 1945 and 1948 by Raymond Weinstein, a former prisoner of the camp he liberated, and discuss the economic and political situation in post-war France. Raymond writes of his struggles to obtain and keep work, his family, health, and progress in gaining his weight back. Among the 26 photographs in this collection are images of a concentration camp, likely Buchenwald, immediately after liberation and include pictures of Raymond and Jack, both wearing helmets in one photograph. Other photographs in the collection came from albums in German homes which Jack broke into. These photographs include images of ghetto inmates wearing armbands and a hanging.
