Therese (Tesi) Wertheim diary

Document | Accession Number: 2008.279.1

Consists of a German language copy, with English translation, of a wartime journal, 14 pages, of Therese (Tesi) Wertheim, originally of Stuttgart, Germany. The journal, written immediately post-war, describes Tesi's experiences between May 10, 1940, when the Germans invaded Enschede in the Netherlands, where she had moved after her marriage, and April 3, 1945, when the town was liberated by the Canadians. In her journal, she describes the arrest of her son, Martin, who was killed at Mauthausen in October 1941. She also describes anti-Jewish legislation, life in in the underground in Enschede and the aerial attacks on the city. The translation was completed by Mrs. Wertheim's nephew, Dr. Martin Sichel and the collection also includes Dr. Sichel's history, in which he describes immigrating to the United States from Stuttgart in 1937.
