Paul Fisch collection
The documents within the Paul Fisch collection were created by a Hungarian student group in Zurich, Switzerland. The report includes a summary of The Auschwitz Protocol, also known as the Vrba-Wetzler Report, which contains eyewitness accounts of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Also included is a report of the state of Hungarian Jews in 1944, and a document that describes the process for growing mushrooms in a basement, a process which Paul Fisch hoped would help feed the people held in the Budapest ghettos. The cover letter of the report includes the names of Protestant theologians Karl Barth (1886-1968), Heinrich Emil Brunner (1889-1966), and Willem Adolph Visser ‘t Hooft, 1900-1985.
