The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of the Ajlkichen family of Brussels, Belgium, including the efforts of Kiwa Ajlkichen and his wife, Tcharna Fleichaker, to hide their children Roza and François, and the deportation of their daughter, Dora, in 1942 and her murder at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Documents include identification papers, a Polish passport, correspondence, a family book, a personal narrative describing Roza’s experiences, and material related to the family’s effort to learn the fate of Dora. Photographs include prewar family photographs of the Ajlkichen family in Brussels and the Fleichaker family in Poland; wartime photographs of Roza and François in hiding at the Château de Beloeil and of Georges Dath, one of the counsellors who cared for Roz and François at Beloeil; and post-war family photographs in Belgium.
Missal given to Jacques Lajbman by Father Philippe Laurent Cleeremans (1878-1944) while he was in hiding in the Belgian village of Tourinnes-St. Lambert.
