"The Most Telling Evidence: Four Letters from the Holocaust"

Document | Accession Number: 2006.361

Contains one article entitled "The Most Telling Evidence: Four Letters from the Holocaust," by Harold and Ellen Ticktin. In the article, the Ticktins present four post-war letters written to Eugenia Bursztyn Green, originally of Warsaw, Poland. Two of the letters were written in 1947, by Dr. Roman Rosenberg, who had emigrated to Australia, and describe his friendship with Eugenia's brother, Ben Bursztyn, and the circumstances surrounding Ben's death and the deaths of Eugenia's parents. The other two letters were written in 1959 by Eliza Szandorowska, a Christian who, with her family, aided Jews during the war. Mrs. Szandorowska recounts Ben's life in the Warsaw ghetto and her memories of him and of his death. Ben survived outside the Warsaw ghetto, but was executed during the Polish uprising against the Germans in August 1944.
