Fiszelow family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2015.285.1

Consists of postcards and letters, in Yiddish, written mostly by Josef Fishelov (Fiszelow) near Pinsk, Poland (now Belarus), from 1920-1948. The postcards are colorful and depict Yiddish greetings and artistic scenes, including of emigration. The correspondence, most of which is undated, was sent to his mother and siblings, many of whom immigrated to the United States in the 1920s. Includes several letters written 1939-1941 and two postwar letters, written in 1945 and 1948 by Josef's son, Nachum, who emigrated to Palestine after the war; in these letters, he explains what happened to the Jews of Pinsk.
