Bernard Rechnitz diary

Document | Accession Number: 1993.A.0008 | RG Number: RG-02.069.01

The diary begins with general discussion of the Holocaust against Jews, then goes to writer's personal saga, beginning in August 1939 just before Germany's invasion of Poland, when he and his wife moved from Katowice to Krakow. The author further relates his memories of the German invasion; confiscation of Jewish property and other measures of persecution by German occupiers; his family's move from Krakow to "Wieliczke" (Wieliczka) and their later incarceration in the "Plashov" (Płaszów?) labor camp. The narrative ends on 17 December 1943.
