Joshua (Szyja) Feldman papers

Document | Accession Number: 2004.614.1

The Joshua (Szyja) Feldman papers consist of restitution files, immigration materials, biographical materials, and study notebooks primarily relating to the post-war experiences of Szyja (Joshua) and his wife Fela Winter Feldman. The papers include letters to Feldman’s family in the United States, official papers regarding restitution and emigration applications, photograph albums and papers from the Davos-Platz hospital in Switzerland, and a copy of "Letters to Salek," a biography of Mr. Feldman. "Letters from Salek" was written by a writer hired by Mr. Feldman's niece, Renée Roll [donor]; the writer used Mr. Feldman's letters and papers to write his experiences as if it were his autobiography. The collection is also interspersed with Renée Roll’s research notes and translations corresponding to specific documents; these notes are typically on lined paper or post-its and written in Roll’s handwriting.
