Dr. Friedrich Walter Forster collection
The Dr. Friedrich Walter Forster collection consists of a photocopy of Forster’s German handwritten memoir of his Holocaust experiences, an English translation of the memoir, and a brief essay written by Forester's nephew Sandro Lane. The memoir describes Dr. Forester’s 1941 deportation from Vienna, Austria to Poland by the Gestapo. In Zakrzowek, Poland he continued his work as a physician before being deported to series of forced labor camps including Budzyn and Miękisz. He was sent to the Flossenbürg concentration camp in 1944. Towards the end of the war, he was sent from Flossenbürg to Dachau concentration camp, where he was sent on a death march and ultimately liberated by the United States Army.
