Dr. Hans Stück collection

Document | Accession Number: 2014.347.1

Consists of post-war letters by Dr. Hans Stück, testimonies by Allied military personnel and Holocaust survivors about Dr. Stück's pre-war and wartime activities, and photographs of the Stück family. The letters and testimonies describe how Dr. Stück, though nominally a member of the Nazi Party, defended Jews and Jehovah's Witnesses in court, arranged for the removal of Jews from Buchenwald to places which were relatively safer, and facilitated correspondence between concentration camp prisoners and the outside world. The letters and testimonies were written while Stück was interned as a prisoner of war and attempting to secure passage for his family out of the Russian zone to Wiesbaden, where he planned to join them upon his release.
