Also in Sheva Alszuld Zilberberg collection
The collection consists of a prenuptial agreement for Marjem Alszuld donor's aunt, documents relating to the donor's family, a letter written by the donor's cousin, 15 photographs of images of the donor and her family before, during, and after World War II, and a Megilat Ester. Some of these materials may be combined into a single collection in the future.
The collection consists of two black and white photographs. One image depicts three women (left to right, unknown, Rika Czerniak and Ruth Anzer) who were with Sheva Zilberberg [donor] during forced labor in Dombia, Poland, in 1943. The second photo shows a large group of men seated on the ground with their hands on their heads in Chelmno, Poland.
The typed letter was sent to Sheva Zilberberg by Monika Janecka, a Polish woman from Da̜brówki, Poland, in which she says that she is sending negatives of photos taken there so that some girls can be identified and is also sending an image of the town so that Sheva can show her husband where she was forced to live and work. Ms. Janecka advises Sheva that as a newlywed she should keep up her strength and not think about the past because nothing will bring back the dead.
