Gabriella Alter papers
The papers consist of seven photographs and four documents relating to the experiences of Gabriella Knöbel (now Gabriella Alter), originally of Novy Sacz, with theTeheran children in Russia, Iran, and Palestine. In 1939, the family were sent to Siberia, but in June 1941, they traveled south in the hopes of reaching Palestine, making it as far as Samarkand in Uzbekistan. There, her parents placed Gabriella on an orphan train traveling to Palestine, hoping she would get better treatment. The Joint cared for these children, who were taken to Tehran and then to Palestine in February 1943. Gabriella reunited with her family in Palestine in 1946.
