Selma Engel papers
The Selma Engel papers consist of Selma's diary, biographical materials, and photographs. The diary (1943-1944), written while in hiding in German occupied Poland, describes Selma's arrival at the Sobibór concentration camp, the Sobibór uprising and her escape with her husband Chaim, the farming couple who hid them in Plisków, and Chaim and Selma's health issues. Biographical materials include repatriation cards for Selma and Chaim under assumed names, a 1946 letter documenting the deaths of Chaim's family members in the Holocaust, and Chaim's prisoner of war work card. Photographs depict Selma's family members in the Netherlands and Selma and Chaim with their baby in Odessa.
