Donald Molofsky collection

Document | Accession Number: 2007.186.1

The Donald Molofsky collection contains mainly correspondence sent from Donald to his parents, from 1947-1948. Molofsky served as an engineer on the SS Exodus, but the correspondence does not contain much information about the voyage itself. The correspondence concerns details from Donald’s time spent on vacation in Haifa, Na'an, and in France. Also included are correspondence from the Molofsky family to Donald, letters from Donald’s friend Zeev “Vivy” Siegel’s parents to the Molofsky family, and various other letters.

Also included are some newspaper and magazine articles concerning Palestine and the SS Exodus.
