Series VIII: Scrapbook 1944-1945,1 over-size box, 22.5 x 29 x 3 inches

Box Folder
10   Scrapbook compiled by Sydenstricker documenting his time as head of the European Nutritional Section of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration during World War II (1944-1945). The scrapbook contains photographs, postcards, official documents, telegrams, and other items. The photographs include personal ones taken perhaps by Sydenstricker of tourist attractions in Europe. The majority of the scrapbook is official photographs taken by the Allies after the liberation of the Nazi Bergen-Belsen concentration camp by the British troops. These photographs depict the atrocities of the concentration camp, primarily the emaciated survivors and the dead. Photographs of malnourished victims of the famine-stricken Netherlands are included. As head of the European Nutritional Section, Sydenstricker developed the rehabilitation plan and oversaw its implementation for the malnourished victims. The captions for the photographs were written by Sydenstricker. The scrapbook measures 19.5 x 25 inches.
