Diary of Nelly Epstein
The diary of Nelly Epstein includes entries, drawings, clippings, and maps written from January 1, 1935 - January 18, 1943. In the diary, Nelly initially writes about friends and family in Vienna, school, vacations, and theater performances. In the later years she documents her four month journey with her husband Emil Katscher and a group of Zionists fleeing via the Danube to the Black Sea and then to Haifa, Palestine. Upon arrival, Nelly was interned for eight months in a British detention camp near Haifa. The diary ends when her husband, who joined the military, is deployed to Egypt.
