Nasielsk - 1938 Films Online

  1. From: D. Kurtz

In 1938 my paternal grandparents David and Liza/Lena Saltzman Kurtz traveled to Nasielsk (his town of birth) and elsewhere in Western Europe, with their friends Louis and Rose Lillian Cohen Malina, and Louis' sister Essie Malina Diamond (widow of David's maternal uncle Dave Diamond).

My grandfather shot 16mm films in black & white and in colour. These films have been donated to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and are available for viewing online as part of the Steven Spielberg Film and Video Archive. Click here.

The films include people (lots of faces, especially children), streets/street scenes, and buildings. We are very interested in hearing from anyone who is familiar with Nasielsk and recognises anything in these films - Please contact me.
