    Collection Summary
    The Dezsofi family collection includes biographical material, correspondence, school notebooks, writings, and magazines relating to the pre-war experiences of twin sisters Dolly and Marianne Dezsofi in Budapest, Hungary as well as during the war while in hiding. Biographical material includes a death certificate and union identification card for Imre Tieberger, Dolly and Marianne’s uncle, two pre-war greeting cards with photographs Dolly gave to her mother for mother's day, and a pre-war photograph of Dolly and Marianne in first grade, dated 1937. Correspondence includes letters written by Dolly and Marianne to their mother as well as letters from Karola and letters to "Grandfather." School notebooks include four pre-war notebooks and a portfolio of text and drawings belonging to Marianne. Magazines include "Pesti Naplo" which features Marianne, "Vilaglapja" which pictures the sisters on the cover, and "Szinhazi Elet" which features a photograph of Dolly and Marianne. Writings and drawings include two notebooks kept by Dolly while in Budapest, dated 1945, a spiral notebook with drawings kept while in hiding, an unbound notebook, dated February, and a pocket calendar, dated 1945. Additionally, the collection includes three handmade doilies embroidered by Dolly and Marianne Dezsofi prior to the war (1940-1941); and one silver napkin ring given to Dolly Dezsofi by her grandfather and engraved with the name "Doli," ca. 1935.
    The collection was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum by Dolly Dezsofi Tiger in 2001 and by Marrianne Dezsofi Kalman in 2002.
