Harmon James collection

Document | Accession Number: 2015.581.1

Consists of printed photographic postcards with handwritten descriptions, a printed article, and a map of Obersalzberg, all collected by either Clifton or Clinton James and mailed to a brother, Harmon James, in the United States. The printed postcards depict images of the Dachau concentration camp after liberation and have been annotated by the sender (who sent them to his brother to avoid upsetting his wife with the images); the article, in German, is "Das Krematorium in Dachau," by Willy Furlan-Horst; the map of Obersalzberg identifies the homes of Hitler, Bormann, and Goering, and was evidently used by Allied soldiers touring the area.
