Engraving of Audley End in Essex, England acquired by to a German Jewish Refugee

Object | Accession Number: 2005.546.92

Engraving of a pastoral scene in Audley End in Essex, England, published in the book series The Beauties of England and Wales. Essex, England was the location of the Quaker boarding school Michael Rossmann attended. After Hitler became German Chancellor in 1933, increasingly severe sanctions were enacted against Jews. Michael was subjected to daily discrimination and beatings at school and was classified as a Mischling due to his mother’s Jewish heritage. In December 1938, Michael was sent to a Quaker school in the Netherlands, but returned to Germany in summer 1939. When the war broke out, Michael and his mother Nelly were in England visiting family and Nelly decided that they would stay.
