Dr. Friedrich Walter Forster collection
Consists of a copy of the original handwritten German memoir of the Holocaust experiences of Dr. Friedrich Walter Forster and a typed English translation of the same. Dr. Forster describes his memories of being evacuated in 1941 by the Gestapo from Vienna and being sent to Poland. He continued his work as a physician in Zakrzowek, Poland, for eighteen months before being deported to a series of work camps, including Budzyn, Miekisz, and, ultimately, to the Flossenburg concentration camp in 1944. In the final days of the war, he was evacuated from Flossenburg to Dachau, and then sent on a death march, during which he was liberated by the United States Army. Includes a short essay written by Sandro Lane about his uncle's life.
