Bernard Robinson papers

Document | Accession Number: 2016.531.1

The Bernard Robinson papers consist of correspondence, research files, testimonies, and photographs, which were created or collected by Robinson as source material for his research projects about women forced laborers during the Holocaust, who were forced onto death marches during the latter days of World War II. In particular, the papers document the experiences of women who participated in two marches, from Grünberg, a sub-camp of Gross-Rosen, to Helmbrechts, a sub-camp of the Flossenbürg concentration camp from January to March, 1945, and a subsequent march from Helmbrechts toward Sudetenland, in April and May 1945. Robinson’s wife, Amalie, was one of the women who survived these marches, and in later years, in addition to the research on the prisoners and the Nazi perpetrators, the Robinsons also participated in reunions among the women, some of which are also documented in these papers.
