Diary of Nelly Epstein
The diary of Nelly Epstein includes entries, drawings, clippings, and maps written from January 1, 1935 - January 18, 1943. Nelly began the diary with entries about friends, family, and activities, such as travel, theater, and life in general in Vienna. In the later years, Nelly documented her journey with her husband Emil (Aryeh) Katscher and other young Zionists fleeing on vessels down the Danube River, across the Black Sea, through the Gallipoli Peninsula to the Aegean, and the Mediterranean Sea, and finally landing in Haifa, Palestine. The diary includes illustrations of their journey. Upon arrival, Nelly was interned for eight months in a British detention camp near Haifa. The diary ends with her husband's military deployment to Egypt and Poland.
