Letters to Łódź: The Zineski Collection


Catholics from Łódź, Poland, Wiesław Żyźniewski (later Wesley Zineski) and his mother, Janina, were arrested in 1942 for their resistance activities, imprisoned, and then sent to Auschwitz. In this episode of Curators Corner, the Museum’s Kyra Schuster shares the letters that Janina wrote to her own mother while she was a prisoner.
