The second is an ORT certificate issued to “Jewish Displaced Person” Bela Spitz by the World ORT Union. The certificate reveals that he reported to ORT Vocational School in Munich for a test of his professional knowledge of tailoring, and he had a working knowledge of this trade. A stamp indicates that the certificate was issued for submission to the proper emigration authorities.

Also included in the collection are sixteen black and white photographs of Vera Spitz with her father, Bela Spitz, and friends in Germany, likely at the displaced persons camp in Eggenfelden, circa 1948. The photographs include images of the Spitz family, unidentified young adults, likely from the Eggenfelden displaced persons camp, and images of Vera participating in a commemorative march for victims of a Nazi death march, circa 1948.
