Jack Waksal photograph collection

Document | Accession Number: 2000.284

The Jack Waksal photograph collection consists of 18 photograph prints taken for identification cards in Kruszyna labor camp (Kruszyna, Silesian Voivodeship) in 1941. All of the men depicted in the photographs perished in the Holocaust. The photographs were acquired by Jack Waksal, a Holocaust survivor originally from Jedlińsk, Poland, after the war from the photographer. Four of the photographs have a small piece of paper affixed to the back with a typed name: “Slifkowich,” “Uer Nifeld,” “Sraria Fishman,” and “Kirshenbam Leizer.” Additionally, there is a photograph depicting a street scene in the Jedlińsk ghetto, circa 1941-circa 1942.
