Goldfarb family papers
The Goldfarb family papers document the experiences of Polish-born Leopold Goldfarb, his Belgian-born wife Jenny, and their daughter Nina; as they sought to escape Belgium following the German invasion in 1940, and immigrate to the United States, by way of Portugal, Jamaica, and Cuba, following Jenny’s death in France. The papers contain identification and immigration documents, correspondence, including over a dozen postcards sent to Leopold Goldfarb by members of his extended family in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1940-1941, family photographs, and correspondence related to Goldfarb’s efforts to receive restitution for property he had entrusted to business associates when he fled Belgium in 1940, but who instead subsequently sold his property and kept the proceeds.
