Pia-Kristina Garde collection
Consists of forms, correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs collected by Pia-Kristina Garde [donor] from Holocaust survivors who had been evacuated to Sweden after liberation. Inspired by the 1945 book "De dödsdömda vittna" ("Those Who Were Sentenced to Death Witness), which was based on questionnaires given to the survivors, the donor searched for these survivors to find out what happened to them later in life. The collection consists of her research files (including correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs she received from survivors) as well as copies of the original questionnaires, now deposited at Uppsala University. The donor has written a book, "Those Who Were Sentenced to Death Witness--60 Years Later" (2004) based on her, sometimes long, relationship with these survivors. The book was later revised and published as "Mina föräldrars kärlek" (The Love of My Parents) in 2008.
