    Overview

    Description
    Consists of correspondence from and regarding Bertha and Johanna (Hansel) Kahn. As Jewish life became difficult in Germany, the mother and daughter moved to Amsterdam. When the Nazi invasion occurred, they went into hiding until their finances ran out. The Dutch Underground offered to take Hansel in, as she did not look Jewish and was good with languages, but she refused to leave her mother. The two women were deported to Westerbork and perished in Sobibor. The correspondence includes a Red Cross telegram from Bertha, dated 1943, and letters describing their situation that were sent to family members in England and in the United States.
