Fanny Auerbach papers
approximately 1934-approximately 1985
The Fanny Auerbach papers contain primarily correspondence between Fanny, a German Jew who escaped Germany in 1935, and Malchen Banner, a young woman who Fanny helped raise while Fanny worked at an orphanage in Cologne, Germany prior to her emigration. Malchen was subsequently deported to the Warsaw ghetto, where in her correspondence to Fanny, she describes the hardships of her life there before her letters abruptly end. Also included are correspondence with Theresa Wallach, the administrator from the orphanage where Fanny had worked, photographs, a poem from another orphan, and a newspaper article.
