    Collection Summary
    The Jakob and Zofia Dymant papers document Jakob Dymant’s escape from Poland during the Holocaust and survival in Japan, China, and India; Zofia Dymant’s wartime work for Walther C. Többens in Warsaw under her Christian alias; and the Christian aliases of some of Zofia’s relatives. Jakob Dymant records include identification papers, receipts, permits, immigration records, and an immunization certificate documenting his prewar life in Warsaw and escape to Vilna and then, with a Chiune Sugihara visa, to Japan, China, and India. This folder also includes a postcard Dymant sent from Bombay seeking information about his family. The postcard was returned to him with the indication that the Warsaw address had been destroyed by fire. The Zofia Dymant document is a registration card under her alias Zofie Sporzynska, documenting her meat allocation as a worker at the Walther C. Többens factory. Dzialoszynski family records include a forged birth certificate, apartment claim document, Warsaw residential documents, and a medical certificate documenting Zofia’s aunt, uncle, and cousin (Fela, Ludwik, and Janino Dzialoszynski) under their aliases Helena, Feliks, and Janino Sporzynski. The collection also consists of one decorative Polish seal, one match case, two cigarette cases, one suitcase, two souvenir stamp books and a dictionary.
    The collection was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum by Zofia Dymant in 1994 and 2001.
