Document | Accession Number: 1998.A.0205

The Dreier and Tarnowski families papers measure 0.5 linear foot and date from approximately 1939‐1944. The collection includes correspondence and photographs documenting the Dreier and Tarnowski families, their hardships in East and West Prussia and Pomerania under Nazi rule, and their efforts to emigrate.
Correspondence primarily consists of letters to Elli and Alfred Burchardy in Shanghai from Flora and Wolff Tarnowski in Stargard, from Edith and Siegfried Tarnowski and Taübchen Tützer in Piaski, and from other family members and friends in Stargard, Piaski, and various cities in Germany. These letters document emigration efforts, family health concerns, and the difficulties of Jewish life under Nazi rule. The collection also contains correspondence between Max and Netty Dreier and their children, including two postcards from Theresienstadt, and official correspondence with Siegfried and Flora Tarnowski about ensuring that the Buchardys received their household goods and transferred money in Shanghai. Photographs depict Netty Dreier, Edith, Siegfried, Ruth, and Taübchen Tützer.
