The Robert Goldberg collection contains material created and collected by Robert Goldberg during his time serving as a dentist during and after World War II. The military duty series consists of orders and forms collected by Goldberg, including authorization for travel to leave the U.S. occupied zones, a farewell party, and a supply train directive. Also included is a doctor’s caloric recommendation for feeding displaced persons, and a booklet monitoring supplies.

The memoir gives insight into his position, as well as the administration of the Pocking DP camp. The correspondence written by Goldberg is to his uncle Morris, and describes the need for donations of any kind to the displaced people in Europe. His intent was for his uncle to pass the letter along to the Temple B’nai Israel in Sacramento California. The publications series contains two items, the copy of a weekly newsletter entitled In Fact, which had the goals of reporting on falsehoods in the press, and debunking popular myths of the time. In addition, in an oversized folder, is a G-2 After Action Report for the 11th Armored Division in April 1945. The report has a daily update on the status of the 11th Armored Division and general military news.
