Mannsbach and Goldschmidt families papers

Document | Accession Number: 2006.180

The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of the Mannsbach and Goldschmidt families, originally of Beverungen and Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The collection primarily documents the emigration of Lilly Goldschmidt (née Mannsbach), her husband Bernhard Goldschmidt, and their son Fred to the United States in 1938, the emigration of her brothers Heinz, Otto, and Richard to South America, and her parents Karl and Luise Mannsbach, who remained in Leipzig, Germany. The bulk of the collection consists of official documents, including birth, marriage, and death certificates; pre-war, wartime, and post-war correspondence; restitution paperwork and translations of select documents. Correspondence includes several letters from Luise in Leipzig to her children prior to her deportation to Theresienstadt in 1942. The bulk of the documents are photocopies.
