Weiner family collection
Consists of photographs and identification, emigration, and passports related to the wartime experiences of Heinrich (Henry) and Eugenia (Jenny) Weiner, originally of Vienna, Austria. A few months after the German annexation of Austria, Heinrich fled to Italy and got papers for Eugenia to join him. Collection includes their passports and a copy and translation of their wedding certificate. They emigrated to Equador in 1939 and from there to the United States, where Henry joined the United States Army in 1941. Includes naturalization paperwork, family photographs, and an article about the birth of their children. While Jenny's parents were able to immigrate to the United States, Henry's immediate family perished in the Holocaust.
