Accession consists of two photocopied letters exchanged between Rose Brewda and Campbellford District High School in 1984 after her visit with students to speak as a survivor of the Holocaust. Two photocopied newspaper clippings relate to this visit. The scanned photographs include aerial photographs of three of the Brewda's four livestock farms; three were in Peterborough and one in Lindsay. There are two older family portraits with Rose's Zaidie taken in Rumania before the Second World War, one of the Brewda family in the 1950s, and one of Rose dancing with her son Irvin at his bar mitzvah, the first one held in Peterborough's new shul in 1965.
