    Marcia Cyviner letters

    Please select from the following options:


    The Marcia Cyviner letters consist of postcards and letters written to Marcia from family and friends in Maków Mazowiecki, Poland, during the German occupation of that country in World War II, and from friends working in a labor camp in the Soviet Union. The majority of the letters are written by Marcia’s mother, Sara and contain messages from aunts, uncles, and cousins. The letters describe life in Poland during the German occupation, between 1940 and 1945, and discuss struggles to stay in touch, to stay in good health and to keep spirits up. Much of the correspondence is addressed to Marcia’s uncle Meyer but contain greetings for Marcia. Also among the papers is a notice from the National Council of Jewish Women notifying Marcia that her brother’s visa applications were denied.
    inclusive:  1940-1945
