Biographical History

Shlomo Goldberg was a native of Luck, Poland, and a survivor of the Holocaust. Goldberg was forced by the Nazis to move east to Byelorussia and work as an engineer. Because of his location and occupation during the war, he was spared from life in the camps.

Acquisition

The diary was started by Shlomo Goldberg after the end of World War II. The photographs of his family in Poland were brought to the United States at the time of his emigration. Other materials were collected up until the time of his death. Before his death, Goldberg entrusted his personal papers to his cousin, Brenda Sanders. In compliance with Goldberg's wishes, Mrs. Sanders donated the materials to United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on 29 July 1991.
