Lewin collection at Yeshiva U #general

Michael Gordy

Has anyone ever examined the Lewin collection in the Special Collections
area of Yeshiva U? I'm interested because of the possibility of
interesting documents on Straznice. Suggestions for getting access or (as
I live in DC), hiring a Yeshiva research assistant?

I found this description at:
