Scope and Content

Beside copies from certain Ukrainian periodicals this correspondence centres on mutual information requests concerning primarily former Nazi perpetrators, especially former Slovakian fascist politician Joseph M. Kirschbaum. Other enquiries focus on people who had helped persecuted Jews or on survivors directly. The latter refers to a CJC enquiry on the address of Otto Frank, father of Holocaust diarist Anne Frank.
