FSU institute receives letters detailing Holocaust experience

by Alonda Thomas

Florida State University’s Institute on World War II and the Human Experience has received a collection of 5,000 letters and memoirs detailing the life of Holocaust survivor Giulia Koritschoner Hine and her extended family. The collection is available online and is free for public viewing.

“We were astounded that Giulia wanted the collection on the Web,” said William Oldson, director of the Institute. “When people give us donations, most don’t want it on the Web for personal reasons. We usually have to promise we won’t do that.”
