Béla Weichherz diaries

Document | Accession Number: 2004.39.1

The collection includes two diaries written by Béla Weichherz for his daughter, Kitty Weichherz, in order to record the events of Kitty's life. The diaries begin in 1929, with Kitty's birth, and continue until 1942, when the Weichherz family was deported from C̆adca, Slovakia to a concentration camp. In the diary Béla makes note of daily events and tracks Kitty's development. Kitty also writes and draws in the diary. Towards the end of the diary, Béla writes about political changes and his fears for his family. The diary also includes family photographs, a birthday card Kitty made for her father in 1941, and growth and development charts Béla made for Kitty.
