The Diary of a Survivor

Document | Accession Number: 1994.A.0205 | RG Number: RG-02.140

The memoir details the separate lives of Herbert R. Ert and that of his father, Samson Reichstein. Besides retelling Ert's life in the United States, the memoir also describes Reichstein's simultaneous experiences in Nazi-occupied Europe. In a letter dated 05 Feb 1995, Ert wrote the USHRIA that, contrary to the text of the memoir, his mother died in Belzec, and not Bergen-Belsen. In the same letter, Ert wished it to be understood that the Anne Frank which he mentions in his memoir was not the diarist. He mistook her for an adolescent of the same name.
