Mail from Lodz

The Memorial has recently received a package from the Muzeum Tradycji Niepodległościowych in Lodz, Poland. Wojciech Zrodlak, a museum employee, had discovered a bundle of documents in a cabinet and sent them to the Neuengamme Concentration Camp. The documents were presumably donated to the museum in the 1980s by Sergiusz Jaskiewicz, a former prisoner of the Kaltenkirchen satellite camp. In 1985 Jaskiewicz became the representative of the Polish Amicale Internationale de Neuengamme in Lodz and since then maintained contact with former prisoners all over the world. Read more
