Roman Haar collection
The Roman Haar collection contains documents from Roman’s childhood, growing up in Poland. The photographs in the collection are mainly of Roman, but some show him posing with his father Salo, and his mother Erna, and his half-brother Joachim Fritsche. The larger photograph taken in 1943 is of Roman while he was hiding in Rzeszow, and one photograph from 1946 is of Roman, Erna, and Joachim. Another photo is from a children’s Purim holiday play put on while at Foehrenwald displaced persons (DP) camp. Also within the collection is a document ordering Roman to be separated from his mother and to live in the Rzeszow ghetto, and Salo’s passport. In addition, the collection includes report cards and a published journal from Roman’s stay at the Foehrenwald DP camp.
