Abram Pukacz papers

Document | Accession Number: 2007.150.1

The Abram Pukacz papers consist of correspondence and photographs documenting Abram and his family from Łask, Poland. The letters were written by Abram to his cousin in Tel Aviv shortly after World War II, and describe the loss of his family in the Holocaust, his loneliness, and his impatience to immigrate to Palestine. Photographs depict Pukacz family members and family home in Łask before the Holocaust, Abram and other young people in the Bergen Belsen displaced persons camp, and the Ayanot agricultural school in Israel. Ayanot photographs include a picture of David Ben-Gurion and other officials at the opening of the Ayanot school and a picture of Vera Weizmann and Eleanor Roosevelt visiting in 1955.
