Alfred Feldman donated this collection to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on July 23, 2008.

Scope and Content

Consists of documents, photographs, correspondence, and testimony related to the Holocaust experiences of the family of Alfred Feldman, originally of Hamburg. He moved with his family to Antwerp in the early 1930s, and in June 1940, Alfred, his father Joachim, mother Pauline, and sisters, arrived at Montagnac in the free French zone. In 1942, after being forced to register with the police, Joachim was sent to the Agde camp and Alfred went to an ORT training school. In August 1942, Alfred's mother and sisters were deported to Auschwitz, where they perished. Alfred and Joachim escaped deportation by hiding with neighbors and survived the war. Includes wartime correspondence to family members in the United States, pre-war, wartime, and post-war photographs, ration books, identity paperwork, and legal documents.
