Trompetter family papers
The Trompetter family papers document the family’s experiences in the Netherlands during the German occupation, and include records pertaining to their efforts to locate other family members during and after the war, including correspondence with the Red Cross. Other items include identification documents for Femma and Morris Trompetter, their extended family tree, and photographs of their children, Marianne and Sylvia, as well as other relatives.
The Trompetter family papers contain primarily records relating to their efforts in locating family members after the war. Many of the responses are from the Red Cross, which attempted to track down relatives, and often delivered the news that they had perished. The papers pertaining to Morris include identification papers, a certificate for diamond cutting, and a medical clearance certificate. Femma’s papers include an identification card, both of her real name and her alias Else Jansen, which she used as part of the Dutch resistance. They also include authorization notes for Femma to take back her children after the war, and a military pass. Other items in the collection are a family tree, photographs of the Trompetter children and relatives, and a propaganda newspaper dropped by Allied forces entitled, De Vliegende Hollander, following Germany’s surrender in May, 1945.
