Scope and Contents

The first volume covers the period from 1967 to 1979 (predominantly from 1978 to 1979) and contains articles, meeting minutes, news clippings, correspondence, memoranda, fact sheets, event programs, photographs, and other organizational records of the Society of Survivors. Most of the documents are original and a few are reproductions.

Much of the documentation relates to the Holocaust Survivors/Liberators Dinner on April 7, 1979, to honor American Veterans who helped liberate the camps in World War II. The event was attended by approximately 120 survivors and 30 liberators. The dinner was open to the community. Also included is a transcript of a 1967 radio broadcast by Alex Dreier and other resources about the Holocaust.
