1 page, double-sided. Travel pass, issued by the Belgian Consulate in Perpignan, France, authorizing Bernhard Otto Fischer to travel freely in the French Occupied Zone and cross the border into Belgium, accompanied by Otto Bondy. Circular stamp on back, b.r has insignia in centre. Narrative: Otto Bondy and Bernhard Otto Fischer escaped the St-Cyprien internment camp in September or October 1940. At the Belgian Consulate, Mr. Fischer was initially refused the travel pass because the consulate only issued travel documents for Belgian nationals (he was Austrian). The officer would not complete the form with the necessary stamp and signature. The escaped men left with the unstamped document, and later convinced 2 gendarmes on the street that they were Belgian and needed their travel pass validated, and were taken to the Gendarmerie where the document was stamped and signed. Mr. Fischer subsequently added Mr. Bondy's name to the document as authorized travel companion. Otto Bondy was the father of the donor, Walter Absil. He was born in Vienna, Austria on January 1, 1897, and fled to Belgium with his family in 1938. He was deported from the Malines (Melechen) transit camp in Belgium to Auschwitz in September 1943, where he was murdered. Bernhard Otto Fischer was Mr. Absil's uncle (his mother's brother). He survived the war and settled in the United Kingdom.

B&W, outdoor scene. 25 people gathered around a stone monument. A short metal gate is visible in the foreground and there are tall trees behind the group. The ground is roughly paved with cobblestones. Few of the subjects are smiling. Narrative: This photograph was taken at a reunion of Jewish survivors from Liubar. They stand around a memorial to those killed in their town during the Holocaust. After the war, the donor Olga Rabinovitz Bilich, and other survivors went back to their town to erect a memorial monument, but the government would not allow it. The survivors appealed to a court and won the case. Olga was born in Liubar in 1924. She went to Odessa in June 1941, where she cared for wounded soldiers. She was evacuated to Kazakhstan, and returned to Odessa after the war. She went back to Liubar in 1944, when it was liberated. She eventually settled in Kiev, teaching literature and languages.
