Mel Lichtig Papers

Source: USHMM Collection

“The Mel Lichtig papers primarily consist of correspondence from Lichtig’s aunt, Hanke Lichtig, to her sister, Pearl Lichtig, in New York. The letters and postcards are addressed from Mielec during the war and Krakow and Stockholm after the war. Hanke’s letters and postcards relay greetings and wishes for good health and are occasionally joined by messages from Maks and Jozefina Lichtig. Some of the correspondence was forwarded to New York via family friends of the Lichtigs in Antwerp named Kartagener. The papers also include a document describing adjustments to Lichtig family property in Mielec.” [source: USHMM]
