The collection consist of two wallets, documents, writings, photographs, ephemera, and photographic postcards relating to the experiences of Joseph Goetz, a Holocaust survivor, and his experiences as a displaced person in Italy following World War II.
The Joseph Goetz papers consists of post-war photographs, poems, tickets and receipts of Joseph Goetz, a Jewish refugee who escaped the Lida labor camp, Nowogródek Województwo, Poland, in 1942. The bulk of the photographs were taken in Italy, but there are also several from Föhrenwald displaced persons camp, Wolfratshausen, Germany, and the United States. The majority are photographs of Goetz and his friends, and some of them have inscriptions on the back. The poems are likely copied or memorized works of other authors. The tickets and receipts are primarily from entertainment in Italy.
