Stanisław Maciejewski collection
The bulk of this collection includes documents from the years 1946 to 1949 regarding the activities of the Association of Polish Former Political Prisoners of Prisons and Concentration Camps in Germany. The material includes prisoner questionnaires containing comprehensive biographical information about prisoners and prospective Association members, as well as photographs, fingerprints, and Verification Commission notes. The most frequently cited reasons for political incarceration were participation in the Warsaw Uprising, work sabotage, being a Polish priest or university professor, issuing of false birth certificates, membership in the Armia Krajowa (Home Army), helping partisans, and distributing underground leaflets and publications. Also incarcerated by the Gestapo were people arrested during routine round-ups or as retaliation for Polish partisan attacks against Germans. Also included are correspondence, medical and compensation records, Maciejewski family documents, newspapers and clippings, and a book collection.
