What a treasure to have those pieces of history.

We have a family member that has a photo of two of her working in a concentration camp. Another family member is putting together her story. We get together and this one family member presents all of us with a photo and tells the story as if it were read from a book.

We are not sure what we are going to do with our photos and the story that goes with them. We haven't gotten that far yet.

OP please let us know what you wind up doing with them.

As for people wanting to see them, I can understand as my family has a great interest in holocaust and the holodomor but the OP should contact a museum first.

They are not my family's pictures. We were out with friends this past weekend, and the wife mentioned them. They were taken by the husband's dad. The husband didn't seem particularly interested in doing anything with them, didn't think anyone would really be interested. I think there are places that woud definitely be interested. Part of what really made them special were the things that were written on the backs of the photos. This young GI's anger at the atrocities is palpable. Also, they were numbered, so you get a sort of timeline. There are similar pictures out there that I have seen, just one or two that I've never seen anything like it before. But the narration that goes with it... that really makes the collection special.

Here is another option:


From their website: The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an internationally renowned Jewish human rights organization. The only museum of its kind in the world, the MOT is dedicated to challenging visitors to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in our world today.
