Norman Salsitz papers

Document | Accession Number: 2003.425.1

The collection consists of two notebooks containing songs and poems hand copied by Norman Salsitz around 1935 and hundreds of photographs of Norman Salsitz and his family taken before, during, and after World War II in and around Kolbuszowa, Poland, and including the Kolbuszowa and Rzeszów ghettos. Most of the photographs date from the 1930s and 1940s and were hidden by Salsitz when the Jewish population of the Kolbuszowa ghetto was deported to Belzec. The collection also includes photographs of educational, religious, and social groups before the war; compulsory prewar labor brigades (“szarwark”); German wartime atrocities; Amalie Petranker and her family in and around Stanisławów and Kraków, Poland; Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz after liberation; and the Zeilsheim displaced persons camp.
