Garbovits family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2019.292.1

The collection consists of wartime postcards sent from Arnold and Karolin Garbovits in Budapest, Hungary in 1944. Two postcards were written by Arnold from a labor camp in Budapest to Karolin and his daughter Erzsebet (later Elizabeth), dated 9 and 15 October 1944. Three postcards were written by Karolin on the train as she was being deported to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in December 1944, one of which was addressed to Elizabeth, dated 12 December 1944; one addressed to a relative called Lainhorn Jolanka, dated 10 December 1944; and one addressed to Ferencz Veiler likely authored by Karolin, dated December 1944. The letter from Karolin to Elizabeth asks for news about Arnold and Elizabeth’s brother Istvan, and also instructs her to speak with Tibor Gideon at the Glass House in Budapest.
