Kan Family Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2002.183.1
Collection Summary
Film footage in both color and black and white representing the pre- and post-war life of a prominent Jewish family from the Netherlands, including scenes of life before and after the Holocaust. The collection also includes a hand-tinted color home movie consisting of a play of sorts featuring two children reenacting the courtship and wedding of Dutch Jews Frits Kan and Jeanne Bloch. Dutch intertitles explain how the two meet, are separated for a time when Frits travels to Singapore, and reunite and marry. This is followed by footage of the actual wedding of the adult Frits and Jeanne in the Netherlands in 1925.
