Goslinski family papers
The Goslinski family papers consist of biographical materials and photographs documenting the Goslinski family of Groningen, Netherlands, their survival in hiding during the Holocaust, their postwar lives in the Netherlands, and their immigration to the United States. Biographical materials feature the note accompanying Bertie Goslinski when she was left in a basket at the home of a member of the Dutch resistance. The note provides her false name, claims she has been abandoned by her mother, and asks that she be cared for. This series also include membership cards, bicycle confiscation notice, move permission, business card, swim diploma, ship postcard, and false identification card. Photographs document the Goslinski family and their Magnus, Jacobs, van Oosten, and Levie relatives, primarily in the Netherlands (Groningen, Arnhem, Assen, Emmen, and Norg). Prewar photographs heavily feature Hetty's siblings Sari and Ibertus Magnus and their parents Roza and Noach Magnus. Wartime pictures show Herman and Hetty’s wedding, Herman at the Balderhaar work camp, and Bertie in hiding. Postwar photographs depict the reunited Herman, Hetty, and Bertie with Bertie’s younger sisters Rosecarrie and Miriam. They show Bertie in school; the family at beaches in Knokke, Zandvoort, and Noordwiyk; and the family’s immigration to the United States. Additional photographs depict Bertie’s rescuer Jane Gnirrep (whom she called Oma Schattepoes) and the Goslinski family’s immigration sponsors Hyman and Fanny Goslinski. The collection also includes the transcript of an interview with Joseph Kertesz, two Holocaust narratives titled Observations and findings of the Sobu-women and We Lack a Good Address, and a compiled List of Family Members Taken by the Nazis.
