So much of what we deal with does not have a happy ending, said Rebecca Erbelding, the archivist who oversees the museums material. I work with people who had a happy childhood until. Or who can tell me about their parents until. Weir Courtney, she said, is a story that starts out sad but is redeeming in the end.

To Rebecca Erbelding, the Holocaust Museum archivist, Weir Courtney seems almost like a fairy tale, too.
I cant tell you how long Ive stared at these photos, she said, referring to the images of children dancing, painting, playing with puppies, riding bikes, doing headstands and playing dress-up. When you stare at them long enough, you know them.
Rebecca had spoken and corresponded with Weir Courtney survivors but had never met any of them. In late October, she accompanied Andra and Tatiana on a tour of the Holocaust Museums permanent exhibit. The sisters had never been to the museum and appeared stunned by the cattle car, one of its most noted artifacts. A similar train car had carried them to Auschwitz.
Rebecca told them that there were two ways through the exhibit one through the car and another around it. That was done specifically so that survivors dont ever have to be in a cattle car again, she explained. The sisters took the way around.
After the tour of the museum, Rebecca led the sisters to the archival offices and showed them the Weir Courtney collection.

The next Saturday, I attended her memorial service with Rebecca, the Holocaust Museum archivist.

Rebecca, too, spoke and remarked that she was perhaps the only person in the room who had not met Manna. To be honest, she said, I couldnt have imagined that Manna was still alive. Perhaps thats one of the problems with being a historian we assume that the people we read about live only on paper.
She held up one such piece of paper a bright drawing of a smiling lady wearing a dress the color of the rainbow. The drawing was from the museums Weir Courtney collection, and it was labeled with a name: Manna.
The children needed her, Rebecca said. They clearly loved her, and she loved them in return. Thats in the records, too.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 - Last December, Rebecca Erbelding, a young archivist at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, opened a letter from a former United States Army intelligence officer who said he wanted to donate photographs of Auschwitz he had found more than 60 years ago in Germany.
Ms. Erbelding was intrigued: Although Auschwitz may be the most notorious of the Nazi death camps, there are only a small number of known photos of the place before its liberation in 1945. Some time the next month, the museum received a package containing 16 cardboard pages, with photos pasted on both sides, and their significance quickly became apparent.
As Ms. Erbelding and other archivists reviewed the album, they realized they had a scrapbook of sorts of the lives of Auschwitz's senior SS officers that was maintained by Karl Höcker, the adjutant to the camp commandant.
