Walter Weiner and Jenny Wilk Correspondence

Identifier: JHCP-006
Abstract This collection contains the correspondence between two Jewish teenage pen pals, Walter Weiner from Boston and Jenny Wilk from Antwerp, Belgium, shortly before and during the first years of World War II. The correspondents share their perspectives on antisemitism in Belgium and the United States, and, after Wilk reports about her ordeal since the start of the war, Weiner looks for ways to console and support her from afar.
