    Contains postcards written by Rosa Wincygster (donor's paternal grandmother) in Busko Zdroj and Warsaw, Poland to her husband, Chaim Hermann Wincygster (later Winchester) who managed to escape from German occupied Poland, first to Italy and later to Tangier, Morocco. Rosa Wincygster stayed in Poland with her youngest son Benjamin (b. 1926) while her daughter Gusta survived in the USSR and her son Marek, who studied textile engineering in Belgium, managed to reach England in 1940. Rosa and Benjamin Wincygster were most probably deported from the Busko Zdroj ghetto to the Treblinka death camp in October 1942. Hermann Wincygster arrived in the US circa December 1941 on board the Serpa Pinto.
