- The collection consists of eight xerographic, typescript pages from the International Tracing Service, sent to Max Frank, of Riverdale, New York, following a request he had made in 1993 for information about his family members. Includes information about his sister, Marta Mayer (née Frank, 1908-1942), who was killed at Auschwitz; Frank's brother-in-law, Hermann Mayer (1897-1942), who like his wife died at Auschwitz after having been interned at Les Milles and Drancy; and Frank's maternal grandparents, Leopold (1850-1941) and Julchen (1860-1942) Löwenstein, who died at Gurs and Auschwitz, respectively. The letters also give instructions on how to file for death certificates for each of these family members.
