Abstract:
Ayduth Lachayim (Witness to Life) is a manuscript documenting the experiences of 178 Holocaust survivors who resided in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1981. The project was coordinated by the Holocaust Education and Commemoration Committee. A copy of the manuscript was presented to the archives of the Yad Vashem Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem, Israel, by a delegation of more than 100 survivors from Cleveland, during the World Gathering of Holocaust Survivors in June, 1981. The collection consists of the original transcript, a handwritten draft, drafts of the introduction, correspondence from Yad Vashem acknowledging the receipt of a copy of the manuscript, and a statement by Jacob Henenberg to the Jewish Community Federation concerning the World Gathering of Holocaust Survivors.
