Karl Fleissig collection
Collection documenting the experiences of Karl Fleissig [donor's father] during the Holocaust. Karl Fleissig was a Jewish man from Vienna who married Josefine, a Catholic woman. He was arrested and eventually deported to the Warsaw ghetto, and then to Auschwitz where he was killed. The collection includes postcards he wrote while imprisoned in Vienna, and two death certificates which falsely stated that Karl Fleissig died of sepsis in Warsaw.
