Martin Perlmutter papers
The Martin Perlmutter papers contain biographical materials and photographs documenting Perlmutter’s time in Italy with his wife, primarily in the Bari displaced persons camp, after World War II before their immigration to the United States. Many of the photographs depict camp demonstrations against British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin and restrictive Palestine immigration policies.
Biographical materials include identification papers and travel papers documenting the displaced persons status of Martin and Dora Perlmutter and their immigration to the United States. Documents include immigration and naturalization records; displaced person, camp, and Red Cross identification papers; a letter from Perlmutter’s cousin, also named Martin Perlmutter; receipts documenting the couple’s passage to New York; and vaccination records.
Photographs depict scenes in Santa Maria di Leuca, Italy and at the displaced persons camp in Bari, Italy. They document camp life; demonstrations against British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin and restrictive Palestine immigration policies; the chief rabbi of Israel’s visit to the camp; and sports events at the camp.
