Boy's brown checked pants recovered postwar by his parents

Object | Accession Number: 2015.509.3

Trousers recovered by Herman and Ethel Berger in Poland after the war. They had belonged to their son Meyer, who did not survive. After the occupation of Poland by Nazi Germany in September 1939, they had placed Meyer in hiding and then gone into hiding separately. After the war ended, they returned to get their son, only to find out that he had been denounced.
