Miriam Rosenthal collection
Consists of pre-war photographs of the extended family of Miriam Schwarcz Rosenthal of Komarno, Czechoslovakia, wartime photographs of Miriam Rosenthal, including a photograph of her 1944 wedding to William Rosenthal in Hungary and post-war photographs of her son, Leslie, who was born while Miriam was imprisoned in the Kaufering subcamp of Dachau. Mrs. Rosenthal became pregnant immediately before her deportation to the concentration camp, managed to hide her condition for a while, and eventually was allowed to give birth in order to demonstrate to the Allies that the Nazis were not cruel. Both Miriam and Leslie were liberated from the Dachau concentration camp in 1945. Donor file contains additional information about her pregnancy and the birth of her son.
