The Auschwitz Jewish Center is home to an extensive collection of artifacts that preserves the memory of Jewish life in Oświęcim. In each issue of our newsletter, we feature one artifact in our collection, managed by Dr. Artur Szyndler.

For the Spring 2019 issue, we are featuring Henryk Enoch’s notebooks from the 1940-1941 school year.

In 1941, Henryk was deported with his parents to the ghetto in Będzin, where he died. Gift of Jan Ptaszkowski.
