Hannes family letters and postcards
The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of the Hannes family, originally of Hamburg, Germany. Included are five German Red Cross letters, dated from March 1943 to October 1944 from Luise Eugenie Hannes to her daughters Ruth (later Ruth Hannes Doswald) and Lieselotte (later Lieselotte E. Rosenmeyer), both of whom fled Hamburg to England. Her daughters’ responses are on the reverse of each letter. Also included are seven postcards addressed to Luise’s husband Dr. Berthold Hannes from former patients imprisoned in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. The postcards date from December 1943 to September 1944.
