Plaut family papers
Correspondence, affidavits, receipts, business cards, and other related documents, related to the efforts of members of the Plaut family, including Seymour and Estelle Plaut of New York City, Ralph Plaut, of Miami Beach, Florida, Edward Plaut, of Jamaice, NY, and Rutherford Plaut, of Norwich, Connecticut, to help their relatives emigrate from Frankfurt, Germany, between 1938 and 1943. Initially efforts were centered on obtaining visas for Ricka Schaumberg, Karoline Weinberg, and Hannchen Stern, all listed as cousins of the Plauts. Following the deaths of Schaumberg and Weinberg in 1940 and 1941, efforts shifted to obtaining documents that would enable Stern and her nephew, Samuel Schaumberg (the widower of Ricka Schaumberg) emigrate, which were ultimately unsuccessful. Other records document that Hannchen Stern (nee Rothschild, b. 24 June 1865) was deported to Theresienstadt in August 1942 and died there, while Samuel Schaumberg (born 3 July 1884, resident of Weberstrasse 7, Frankfurt am Main) was declared as deceased at the end of the war.
