Isenberg Family Film Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2013.215.1
Collection Summary
Mark Isenberg donated his grandfather Solomon’s black and white home movies of the Isenberg family to the Museum during the 20th anniversary commemoration event in Chicago. Solomon Isenberg was a successful banker living in Saarbrücken, Germany. The films show Jewish family life in Germany and travel to other European cities between 1928 and 1938. The Isenbergs immigrated to the United States in 1938. A photograph of this collection is featured on the cover of the fall 2013 issue of the Museum’s bi-annual magazine, Memory & Action.
