    The material pertaining to Hermann Seligman consists of: orders and instructions to the Jewish community in Germany which were distributed by the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland; a letter from the American consulate in Hamburg; and information regarding their settlement of Jews in Terezín (a.k.a Theresienstadt). Additional material in this collection consists of a letter from the American consulate in Hamburg to the American Senator James M. Mead, dated 20 February 1940, describing the status of one Heinz Langstaedter's attempt to emigrate to the United States from Germany; and a letter from Alfred Mayer to the American Consul in Marseilles, France, dated 13 October 1941, detailing his attempts to free his cousin, Heinz Langstaedter, from German captivity. Langstaedter had been taken from Stuttgart, Germany, to the Nazi concentration camp at Gurs, France, and then to the Nazi camp in Rivesaltes, also in France. Mayer has tried many different ways to get Langstaedter out of Europe, and now he would like the advice of the American Consul in Marseilles, France.
