Suitcase from the house of Szymon Kluger3D Model
Full name: Suitcase from the house of Szymon Kluger in Oświęcim, Poland
A suitcase from the collection of objects found in the house of Szymon Kluger (1925–2000), the last Jewish resident of Oświęcim.
Szymon was one of the Jewish residents of Oświęcim who survived the Holocaust and eventually returned to their hometown. Surprisingly, he did so in the 1960s, when the last remaining Jews were on the point of leaving the town in the face of mounting antisemitism and a growing sense of isolation. They decided to leave Poland for good, joining their families, primarily in the United States and in Israel, and less commonly in select Western European cities.
