Schultz and Bodnar families papers

Document | Accession Number: 2017.336.1

The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of the Schultz and Bodnar families, both of Hungary. The collection includes biographical material such as education, identification, and immigration documents; wartime correspondence between John and Edith (née Schultz) Bodnar in the United States and their families in Budapest; and pre-war family photographs. The collection also documents the death of Zoltan Schultz, Edith’s brother, who was killed on a death march to Mauthausen in April 1945, buried in a shallow grave, and reinterred in May 1945 by orders of the United States Army in a Catholic cemetery in Sankt Pankraz. Material includes documents, letters, and photographs found with Zoltan’s remains after he was killed and the Austrian police report regarding the disinterment.
