Abstract

In October 2011, Mr. Edward Victor, former lawyer and philanthropist, donated to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust his Collection of the Second World War era documents and artifacts. Owing to this generous donation, our Archive acquired highly valuable historic materials. Being multivectorial by content and form, these documents and artifacts mirror various facets of the Holocaust and in a broader sense, they emanate from the war realities.

Mr. Victor’s Papers also include a special collection of postcards and photographs depicting largely bygone synagogues of Europe, Northern Africa and Middle East.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

Ed Victor Papers comprises 58 collections, sub-collections. The latters include a great deal of folders and folder-level collections. All in all this record groups contains around 1800 documents.

Collection Historical Note

Mr. Victor started his collection guided primarily by philatelic interest. He collected letters, envelopes, postcards and other documents bearing a postal stamp or institutional stamps of the respective authorities and agencies. At a certain point, he realizes that the fate of the people, reflected in the short narratives, is of eternal historic value and shall not be measured only in a philatelic dimension. The content of various wartime correspondences reveals a historic enormity of victimization, dehumanization and personal tragedies on one side and a cold blood calmness of perpetrators on the other.

Reading correspondences sent from concentration camps, prisons, ghettos and German labor service open up a microcosm of tragic stories.  Other groups of documents, such as official correspondences of National Socialist authorities, inquiries submitted by the relatives of incarcerated people, antisemitic and propaganda materials, rationing coupons also broaden our understanding of the Holocaust and about the structure of the Nazi regime.  Ed Victor Papers, as a corpus of wartime documents, historicize the Holocaust in the context of the 20th century History.  They shed light on the earlier, lesser known and often under researched pages of the Holocaust Experience, especially when it comes to the fate of individuals. At a certain point, multiple micro-histories become qualitatively intrinsic to the macro-history of the Holocaust.

Document/Artifact of Item-Level 02: RG-72.24.02, Postcard sent from Corporal Jona Richfield from Stalag VIII B in Silesia (Germany)  to Margit Richfield in Tel Aviv, Palestine, 11 February 1942 Stalag VIII-B Lamsdorf was a notorious German Army prisoner of war camp, later renumbered Stalag-344, located near the small town of Lamsdorf (now called Łambinowice) in Silesia. It was opened in 1939 to house Polish prisoners from the German September 1939 offensive. Later approximately 100,000 prisoners from Australia, Belgium, British India, British Palestine, Canada, France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, the United States and Yugoslavia passed through this camp. In 1941 a separate camp, Stalag VIII-F was set up close by to house the Soviet prisoners. In 1943, the Lamsdorf camp was split up, and many of the prisoners (and Arbeitskommando) were transferred to two new base camps Stalag VIII-C Sagan (modern Żagań and Stalag VIII-D Teschen (modern Český Těšín). The base camp at Lamsdorf was renumbered Stalag 344. The Soviet Army reached the camp on 17 March 1945. Later the Lamsdorf camp was used by the Soviets to house Germans, both prisoners of war and civilians. Polish army personnel being repatriated from POW camps were also processed through Lamsdorf and sometimes held there as prisoners for several months. Some were later released, others sent to Gulags in Siberia. By 1943, the famous camp for Allied flight personnel in Sagan - Stalag Luft III - had become so overcrowded that about 1,000, mostly non-commissioned flight personnel, were transferred to Lamsdorf. A part of Stalag VIII-B was separated by building new barbed-wire fences, designated Stalag Luft VIII-B. Thus a camp within a camp was created. However all food was provided from kitchens operated by army personnel in the camp proper. In January 1945, as the Soviet armies resumed their offensive and advanced into Germany, many of the prisoners were marched westward in groups of 200 to 300 in the so-called Death March. Many of them died from the bitter cold and exhaustion. The lucky ones got far enough to the west to be liberated by the American army. The unlucky ones got liberated by the Soviets, who instead of turning them over quickly to the western allies, held them as virtual hostages for several more months. Many of them were finally repatriated towards the end of 1945 through the port of Odessa on the Black Sea., 11 February, 1942Add to your cart.View associated digital content.

This is a postcard sent from German POW camp, Stalag VIII-B, by a captured Allied soldier named Corporal Jona Richfield. The card was sent to the address of a Mrs. Magit Richfield, presumably the Corporal's wife, in Tel Aviv, Palestine.

This document is a cover letter, written in Italian and sent from a friend or family member to an Italian prisoner of war.  The sender's address, (Alessandria, Valenza), a commune in Italy.  Five Italian post stamps adorn the envelope, the stamps depict a photo of Italian leader Benito Mussolini.  The Chiasso-Jerusalem mail route written on the cover letter indicates the mail is being sent to Africa, specifically the Italian east African colony of Eritrea.  During the North Africa campaign, the British overran the Italian-controlled African colony of Eritrea, thus, the Italian P.O.W. being written to in this letter indicates that he was captured during the British invasion of Eritrea, circa 1942.
