Sonnenmark family correspondence

Document | Accession Number: 2012.65.1

Correspondence between members of the family of Robert Sonnenmark, of Prossnitz, in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia (Prostějov, Czech Republic). Most of the letters are from Robert, while he was imprisoned at Buchenwald, addressed to his wife, Marta and daughter, Miriam in Prossnitz, and dated from October 1939 to March 1940. Many of these letters were forwarded by Marta to her father and brother in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, who added their own comments in the margins and forwarded them to Peter Sonnenmark, the son of Marta and Robert, who was living in Palestine. Other correspondence includes Red Cross letters sent by Peter to his parents and sister, June 1940 to July 1942; postcards sent by Marta to her father, Adolf Huber, in Zagreb, from January 1940 to August 1942; one postcard sent by Marta to Leo Susmann in Madrid, June 1942; and one postcard each sent by Marta and her daughter Miriam, after their deportation to Theresienstadt, and addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Stern, Marta's uncle and aunt, in Prossnitz, May 1944.
