Images of Wisconsin's Holocaust Survivors

Images of Wisconsin's Holocaust Survivors Images of Wisconsin's Holocaust Survivors at the WHS. "...More than 140,000 Holocaust survivors came to the United States after World War II. Many came because the only members of their families still living were those who had come to the U.S. before the war. The number who came to Wisconsin is difficult to determine, although estimates place it between 1,000 and 2,000 people. Two dozen of those who settled in Wisconsin were interviewed by Society staff in the 1970s and 1980s, generating more than 160 hours of tape and a collection of more than 1,600 images."
