Ann Strauss-Salfield collection
The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of Ann Strauss-Salfield (née Schloss), originally of Stuttgart, Germany. The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence between Ann, who fled to England in 1939, and her future husband Milton Strauss living in the United States. The correspondence focuses on their daily lives, but there are frequent discussions of her attempts to get a visa and immigrate to the United States. Other correspondence includes letters to Ann from her grandmother, Uncle Moritz, and her stepsister Margrit; and letters to Milton from his brother Alfred and friend Uli. Biographical material includes Ann’s German birth certificate, a letter from the International Red Cross regarding Ann’s attempts to locate her stepmother Bella and stepsister Margrit, her 1938 report card, a poem, marriage announcement for Ann and Milton, and a transcript of an oral history conducted with Ann in 1990.
