A-5053 Sam Fried Society of Survivors, Inc. (7/11/79), 1967-2013
Scope and Contents
This is a two-volume set of information about the Society of Survivors, which was founded by Sam and Magda Fried in 1978 and legally incorporated on July 11, 1979. At first, the Society numbered about 60 members, all Holocaust survivors living in Omaha, Nebraska. Sam Fried was elected the first Chair of the organization. Within a year, the organization had grown to about 100 members from Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, and Sioux City, Iowa. The organization spoke out against Holocaust deniers, and also recognized and honored liberators. They advocated for an extension to the Statute of Limitations on Nazi War Crimes in West Germany in 1979. The organization was associated with the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
The two notebooks together cover the period from 1967 to 2013.
