    Overview

    Description
    Consists of documents related to the pre-war, wartime, and immediate post-war experiences of Heinz Adolf Sprung, originally of Leipzig, Germany. Heinz was arrested in 1939 and was sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Collection includes letters and postcards, on Sachsenhausen stationery, which Heinz sent to his mother and uncles from 1939-1942, as well as mail he received from them. In 1942, Heinz was sent to Auschwitz and worked in Buna until January 1945, when he was sent on a death march back to Germany, where he was liberated. After the war, Heinz wrote down his experiences in a notebook, including a timeline of the years in which he was in camps and a list of names of the SS officers who were in charge of the camp and of his barrack. The notebook, along with documents regarding Heinz's experiences as a displaced person, are included in the collection.
