Also in Horn family photographs
Consists of seven original photographs of Estera Horn and her maternal relatives before the war in Chelm, Kamien, and Krocyn, Poland, and in Palestine during the war; and two gold-colored metal buttons taken from the donor's coat by her rescuer, Leokadia Wojtkiewicz.
The buttons were originally attached to Estera Horn's coat. Leokadia Wojtkiewicz, one of Estera's rescuers, removed the buttons while explaining to Estera that she had to do so for safety reasons because "all Jewish children have buttons like these."
