During the Holocaust
Small silver teaspoon engraved with the name of a girl, Suzy Strauss
Menachem-Max Strauss and his wife, Elizabeth (née Bohem), both born to secular established families, lived in Munkács. Menachem-Max was a senior employee at the Swiss wood and manufacturing company "Latorica" that had a branch in Munkács.
During the deportation of Hungarian Jewry in 1944, Elizabeth and her daughter Suzy were taken to Auschwitz, where they were murdered together with Elizabeth's mother. Max was seemingly taken to a labor unit where he died.
Suzy's possessions were looked after by Georgina Mayer (née Bohem), Elizabeth's sister. She managed to flee to Budapest, where she found shelter in one of the safe houses.
It is unclear how Georgina got hold of the artifacts, as she never returned to Munkács and after the war immigrated to Eretz Israel via Yugoslavia. It may be that the family's possessions were kept by neighbors who made contact with her. Georgina died in 2006. The artifacts were given to Yad Vashem by the nephew of her late husband.
