    The collection documents the post-war experiences of Anna Gure (born Anna Gurvich), originally of Kaunas, Lithuania. Documents include a certificate issued by the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in Bavaria stating that Anna was a former prisoner at the Stutthof concentration camp and a Swiss Red Cross document regarding the results of a chest x-ray. Photographs include depictions of Anna in her Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) uniform, likely in the Sankt Ottilien displaced persons camp.
