Werner Goldsmith papers

Document | Accession Number: 1990.198 | RG Number: RG-10.424

The collection contains photographs and documents. The first photograph was taken in Berlin, Germany, and depicts Werner Goldsmith at age 10. A few months after this photograph was taken, Werner Goldsmith departed for France with a group of Jewish children. Other papers contain copies of six black and white photographs taken in the 1930s and 1940s and 12 original photographs taken in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as an affidavit from the Consulate of the United States at Marseille, France, and a telegram dated May 25, 1946, to Werner Goldsmith from his mother. The photographs depict Erfurt, Germany, children in France with Oeuvre de secours aux enfants (OSE), the Rothschild orphanage, and the graves of Werner Goldsmith's grandparents and father.
