Abstract/Description: This volume covers the period from 1938 to 2013 and contains government documents, correspondence, proclamations, reports, newsletters, event programs, speech transcripts, photographs, and certificates. Most of the documents are original and a few are reproductions. The first document in this volume is an October 28, 1938, telegram from Leipzig to the Secretary of State regarding the forced exodus of Polish Jews from Germany, followed by further telegrams regarding the anti-Semitic violence that followed. Then the volume leaps ahead to 1978 correspondence and the 1979 records of the President's Commission on the Holocaust, including the establishment of the Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust. The volume further contains documents against Holocaust deniers, in recognition of liberators, and in support of Remembrance events. Also included are the commencement program and script from December 2007, when Sam Fried received an honorary PhD in Humane Letters from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Lastly, the volume includes certificates and event programs for awards given to Sam (or Sam and Frances) Fried by the Mayor of Lincoln, the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, and the Rotary Club of Omaha. 2-inch-thick expanding two-post binder with black fabric cover and title page created by Sam Fried.
