Arbeitsjude [Jewish worker] armband with a Star of David worn in the Boryslaw labor camp

Object | Accession Number: 2007.199.2

Arbeitsjude [Jewish worker] armband issued to 28 year old Eugenia Josefsberg Burg to identify her as Jewish forced laborer during her imprisonment in the ghetto in Boryslaw, Poland (Boryslav, Ukraine), established by the Germans in August 1942. Boryslaw had an important oil refinery and, for a while, the workers were not subject to the mass deportations to death camps which emptied Boryslaw of all Jews by 1944. Eugenia and her husband, Szymon, escaped from the ghetto around April 1943. With a small group, they hid in a dugout in the forest until the area was liberated by the Soviet Army on August 7, 1944.
