Ungar family papers
The Ungar family papers consist of original correspondence received by Eric Ungar’s family in St. Louis from their Ungar and Schlesinger relatives in Austria and England between 1939 and 1944 as well as a copy of a family history compiled by Eric Ungar. The correspondence describes life in wartime Austria and England, particularly the suffering and deprivation of the Schlesinger grandparents in Vienna, relates emigration efforts and complications, and asks for and relays news about family members, including those sent to Theresienstadt, Poland, and Lithuania. The correspondence also reflects the challenges Ungar’s family faced in St. Louis. The family history includes Ungar’s family overview and family tree, copies of the original correspondence, and Ungar’s translations of that correspondence created in 1996 and 1998.
