Maria Lichtsztejn and Sarah Montard collection
The Maria Lichtsztejn and Sarah Montard collection contains personal narratives by Maria and Sarah describing their experiences during the Holocaust. Three copies of a memoir written by Maria is comprised in this collection, including translations in Yiddish, English, and French. In it, Maria describes her and Sarah’s second arrest in 1944, their internment at Drancy, and deportation to Auschwitz. Sarah wrote two memoirs, the first describing her and her mother’s first arrest in 1942 and their temporary detainment at the Vel d’Hiver before both managed to escape and the second titled “March 15, 1945 – Today is my birthday,” describing their liberation from Bergen-Belsen. This collection also contains a photocopy of Sarah’s memoir as it appeared in “La Tribune sioniste de France” in 1958.
