Margot Cohen collection about Max, Gisela, and Reha Bayer
Contains photocopies of correspondence and poems relating to a part of Margot Cohen's family. Margot's mother had a brother named Max Bayer. He and his wife, Gisela Bayer (nee Schrage), had a daughter named Reha. Max taught at a school for the deaf in Berlin, Germany. During the Holocaust, Max was employed as a guard at a small concentration camp. During one of his shifts, two prisoners escaped. For this, he and his family were deported to an unknown place and met an unknown fate. The letter is from an unknown woman to a Mrs. Stern detailing the fate of the Bayer Family. The two poems are about motherhood, and their relation to the Bayer family and/or their experience is unclear.
