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