Abstract:

Wulf, a Jewish historian, was born in Chemnitz in 1912 and died in Berlin in 1974. In 1942, while living in Kraków, Wulf found refuge for his wife and son with a Polish peasant, while he himself joined a resistance group, was arrested in March 1943, and deported to Auschwitz. He survived thanks to his skill as a storyteller, appreciated by a kapo. In January 1945 he managed to escape from a death march; his wife and son also survived. This booklet deals with his activities after the war. After spending several years in Paris, New York, and Jerusalem, Wulf finally settled in Berlin in 1955. He was one of the first historians of the Holocaust, devoting all his energies to documentation of the events of the Holocaust and to its commemoration. His published works, and especially his copious collections of documents, made a significant contribution to Holocaust historiography. Wulf was also the intiator of a plan for commemoration of the site of the Wannsee Conference, which was not realized in his time.
