Survivor Explains Donation to Holocaust Museum

Holocaust survivor Frank Grunwald describes why he donated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum the last letter his mother ever wrote. She wrote the letter just before she was killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

The Museum is a better place for such artifacts than a private home. The Museum will preserve, protect and share them as appropriate to document the Holocaust. Items in a drawer at home probably won’t last long.
