Abraham Spiegel papers
The Abraham Spiegel papers consist of biographical materials documenting the Spiegel family, originally from Munkács (formerly Hungary) and Bardejov (Slovakia). Records include birth, marriage, and death certificates, residency and citizenship documents, and immigration and naturalization records. The papers particularly reflect the Spiegel family’s efforts to document their Hungarian citizenship to avoid deportation as Jewish non-citizens following the border realignments of the First Vienna Award in 1938 as well as Abraham’s immigration to the United States in 1947 with his wife and son.
