A Visit to Munkács in 1938- Archival Footage of a Family Murdered in the Holocaust,,,In 1938, Dora Lichtman née Klein, her husband (name unknown) and her daughter Gloria arrived from the US to visit her parents and family. They captured their visit on film. The film was shot at the home of Dora's parents, Chaim Tzvi-Hirsch and Nina Klein, in Munkács, as well as in the village of Batyu, some 30km from Munkács, where Chaim Tzvi's brother, Moshe, and his wife, Tzila, lived. Chaim Tzvi-Hirsch's son David married Moshe's daughter Ilona, and the two lived with Moshe and Tzila in Batyu. Their son, Oskar Klein, donated the film to Yad Vashem. He identified the family members appearing in the film, and described what had happened to each of them. The video is part of the exhibition "A Jewish Community in the Carpathian Mountains: The Story of Munkács". This exhibition was prepared with the support of The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany,http://www1.yadvashem.org/yv/en/exhibitions/communities/munkacs/index.asp
