The collection consists of documents and film related to the experiences of Marcus (Mark) Tennenbaum and his family in Vienna, Austria, and during his emigration to the United States during the Holocaust. Some of these materials may be combined into a single collection in the future.
The papers consist of two Deutsches Reich Reisepasses (passports) and four documents relating to the efforts of Marcus (Mark) and Ernestine Tennenbaum and their son, Robert, to immigrate to the United States from Vienna, Austria, in 1939.
Contains photocopies of a handwritten memoir, 45 pages, about Mark Tennenbaum's experiences when the Nazis first occupied Vienna in March 1938 until he left on March 9, 1939, as well as documents containing information about the Tennenbaum family's emigration to the United States on the R.M.S. Queen Mary, which sailed on March 18, 1939. Also includes 91 photographs and copies of photographs of his family, his home, and his lumber business in downtown Vienna in the late 1930s.
