The fate of many people whom the members of the Ładoś Group attempted to save remains unknown to this day. All we have are their photographs stored in archives. The photographs presented below come from the collection of Chaim Eiss – currently in the archives of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum – as well as from the documentation from the investigation into Honorary Consul of Paraguay, Rudolf Hügli – currently in the Swiss Federal Archives. These photographs were probably never attached to any passport. Read more
With the death of Chaim Eiss in November 1943 and the material confiscated by the police, they have remained locked in fonds for years. The Pilecki Institute is working on a list of people who received the passports and is looking for information on these 328 individuals whose first- and surnames are known.
We would be extremely grateful to hear from anyone who might have any knowledge about the fates of the people presented in the photographs.
