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.

Notes
Single-sided page with no creases. Printing blemishes across surface, three locations marked with pen, Piotrkow Trybunalski is marked with an arrow. This is a map of the Jewish pre-war Poland. Narrative: Charles Kotkowsky was born in Piotrkow, Poland, in 1920. He was the son of a butcher, and had three siblings. He tried to immigrate to the USA as the Nazi persecution of Jews began, but he was unable to get the necessary documents in time. Meanwhile, he worked as a tailor in Lodz. The Germans entered Lodz on 1939/9/5 and had set up a ghetto by October. Charles worked in a glass factory, but eventually enlisted to avoid being used for forced labour. The Germans began rounding up Jews around Jewish holidays for labour or small transports for Auschwitz and Treblinka. At this time, he began receiving packages of letters and money from Ignac Samsonowicz, his old Yiddish teacher. The glass factory became a labour camp where Charles and his brother worked until they were sent to Czestochowa labour camp in November 1944. They made bullets in the factory there. The women in the glass factory were sent to Ravensbrück. Later Charles was sent to Buchenwald, where he and his friends were assigned easy jobs because their supervisor was a resistance sympathizer. Charles met Leon Blum before he was moved to Flossenburg. On their last transport train Charles and his brother jumped from the train along with many other Jews (some of which were shot in the attempt) and were sheltered in a Czechoslovakian town until the American army arrived. He moved to Italy where he worked as a translator, mostly in doctor's offices. He moved to Canada in 1951.He married Sally Blum, and they had two children, Pearl Levine and Rickie Cohen. Charles died from cancer on 2003/2/8 in Toronto, Canada.
