A Father’s Search: The Marokus Collection

In 1938, Leon Marokus came to the United States from Lvov, Poland. His plans to have his wife and daughters join him were disrupted by World War II. In this episode of Curators Corner, Suzy Snyder shares a collection of letters that document both Leon's efforts to bring his family to the United States from 1938 through 1941 and his search after the war for his younger daughter Pola, who was believed to have survived the Holocaust.
