15Title:  Sol Feuer Papers     
 Creator:  Feuer, Sol 
 Dates:  1944-2005 
 Abstract:  Sol Feuer (1919-2007) was a Holocaust survivor and Cleveland, Ohio-area Yiddish writer and actor. Feuer, was born in Sighet Maramures, Romania, as Shlomo Zalmen ben Anshel Feuerwerker. While serving in the Romanian army during World War II, he was taken captive by the Nazis and transported first to a labor camp, and then to Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps, where he worked as a shoemaker. Feuer arrived in Dachau only days before liberation by the American army in 1945. There, after the liberation, he met German artist Otto Fuchs, who sketched Feuer in his prison uniform. Feuer resided in Germany until he was able to come to the United States in 1949. Once in the Cleveland area, he became owner and operator of a Willowick shoe store. Feuer wrote extensively in both Yiddish and English, and his writings can now be found in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage. He often wrote for the Kol Israel Foundation, a group established by local survivors to which he belonged, and local magazines. Many of his works reflect his experiences during World War II and his life as a Holocaust survivor. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Feuer also sang and acted in local Jewish theatre, often appearing in Yiddish-language productions. The collection consists of articles, correspondence, drafts, newspaper clippings, notes, theatre programs, scripts, a memoir, and a sketch.
