The Naum Wortman and William Laufer families papers consist of biographical materials, correspondence files, displaced persons camp records, photographs, and printed materials documenting Wortman's family, his work as a doctor at Auschwitz and for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, American Joint Distribution Committee, and International Refugee Organization at Ebensee and Ebelsberg, and his immigration to the United States. The collection also includes a description of the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp by his first wife, Gisela Plancer Wortman.
