Also in Joseph and Rose Lieberman collection
The collection consists of an identification card, photographic negative, and tefillin scroll relating to the time period of the Holocaust.
The papers consist of a black and white photographic negative showing a person walking near several low, barracks-type buildings in a concentration camp and an identification card issued to "Josef Liberman," a Jewish ex-prisoner of Dachau concentration camp, by the Jewish committee of the United Nation Relief and Rehabilitation Administration on July 10, 1945, in Germany.
