    Overview

    Collection Summary
    Dov Kischinovsky authorized USHMM to copy his grandmother’s 9.5mm black and white films showing the Schermeister family at their vacation home in Snekkersten, Denmark in the 1920s and 1930s. Scenes include the donor’s mother, Lis Kischinovsky (nee Schermeister), and aunt swimming and playing with their relatives, and the family participating in a Havdalah ceremony. The family was smuggled out of Denmark to Sweden in 1943. The day after they arrived in Sweden, Lis's father Bernhard, a milliner who is seen frequently in the film footage, committed suicide. The Schermeister family remained in Stockholm until 1945, when they returned to Copenhagen. They found their apartment inhabited by other people but a neighbor had stored all of their possessions for them. This acquisition is our first home movie collection featuring Danish Jews. One videocassette (11 minutes)
