Many scholars of the Holocaust have come to believe that when a Holocaust survivor tells a story that sounds too incredible to be true, it may be just that: the truth. Such is the story of Lili Zelmanovic (Lili Jacob Meier) and her photo album. 18-year-old Lili Jacob was deported with her family, and most of the Jews of Hungary, in the spring of 1944. She was lucky and survived. She was granted a small miracle. On the day of her liberation, she found in the deserted SS barracks a photo album. It contained, among others, pictures of her family and friends as they arrived on the ramp and unknowingly awaited their death. It is the only photographic evidence of Jews arriving in Auschwitz or any other death camp. After the war, Lili found and married Max Zelmanovic, a prewar acquaintance. The album continued to be central to their lives. Survivors spread the word of a unique album in the possession of a waitress in Miami, and they made their way across the country to seek her out. Not a week would go by but Lili would bring home strangers who were not strangers, and they would pour over the pictures and weep. Rarely, someone would identify a family member, and Lili would give them the snapshot. Most of the photos remained unclaimed. In 1980 Serge Klarsfeld convinced Lilly that the album should be safeguarded at Yad Vashem. She came to Jerusalem and donated it to Yad Vashem, where it resides to this day and is treasured for the future.
