Blam and Selinger family papers

Document | Accession Number: 1995.99

The Blam and Selinger family papers consists primarily of correspondence in the form of postcards from Golda and Hersch Blam to their family, presumably their daughter, Machcia in Sambor. One postcard in the collection is from Toni (?) Selinger to Machcia. The postcards were written during a five month period between June and October of 1942, a time period when most of the Jews from the Drohobycz ghetto were transported to the Belzec extermination camp. Most of the postcards relate family news and concerns for each other’s health and wellbeing. Mention of food shortages and a lack of adequate clothing for Oleg is made in a couple of the postcards. Also included are three undated family photographs depicting Golda, Hersch, Oleg, and Machcia and a map of the Warsaw ghetto’s borders between 1940 and 1942.
