William Buckhantz papers

Document | Accession Number: 2014.73.1

The William Buckhantz collection is an excellent resource for those studying the experiences of UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) personnel working in displaced persons camps. The collection includes extensive photographs depicting life in the Deggendorf and Ellwangen displaced persons camp. It also includes blank UNRRA forms, including blank AEF Displaced Persons forms and identity cards. Buckhantz also received letters written by displaced persons asking for his assistance; a remarkable document written and illustrated by a survivor cartoonist, Georg Feier, gives his identifying information and describing his wartime experiences is included in the collection.
