Rabbi Eli A. Bohnen photograph collection

Document | Accession Number: 2015.458.1

The collection contains photographs and a photograph album documenting the experiences of United States Army Chaplain Rabbi Eli Bohnen in Austria and Germany from 1943-1946. The photograph album was presented to Bohnen, who worked with Jewish Holocaust survivors in the Bad Gastein displaced persons camp, Austria, by the residents upon the closing of the DP camp in 1946. The album depicts the residents, school, organizations, drama society, workshops, protests, and Rabbi Bohnen. The photographs contain wartime and post-war images of Bohnen, along with fellow soldiers and friends primarily in Germany and Austria. Also included is a photograph of a baby with a letter to Bohnen written on the verso. The letter, written by Werner Brink, was likely written by a survivor that Bohnen knew at Bad Gastein.
