Lakhovitzky family collection

Document | Accession Number: 2012.416.1

The Lakhovitzky family papers contain birth certificates, marriage certificates, certificates of identity, travel documents, photographs, and similar materials documenting the family’s migration from Russia to France in 1927-1928, their internment in camps from 1941-1942, and their immigration to the United States in 1942.

Outside of birth certificates from Russia for Natan Lakhovitzky, and documents attesting to the marriage and Russian citizenship of Natan and Vera Lakhovitzky from their stay in Turkey in 1927, the majority of the documents date from the period of their residence in and around Strasbourg, France, from 1928-1941, including identification and residence permits, and photographs of the couple and their elder son, Gilbert. Additional documents from the period of their internment following the German occupation of France and the establishment of the Vichy regime in the south include a transit permit showing Natan Lakhovitzky’s transfer from Rivesaltes to Les Milles. Subsequent documentation is related largely to the family’s immigration to the United States in 1942.
