Mignon Langnas papers
Contains postcards received by Mignon Langnas (donor's mother), a Jewish nurse in Vienna, from Viennese Jews that had been deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp; the majority of the correspondence consists of inscriptions written on pre-printed postcards stating that the writer received packages sent by Mignon. Mignon remained in Vienna and sent packages to over thirty families interned in Theresienstadt, the majority of whom were ultimately deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp where they are assumed to have perished. Mignon was liberated in Vienna and ultimately immigrated to the United States, joining her children and husband who fled before the war.
