Gerstle and Levi family collection
Consists of letters and documents regarding attempts by Sophie Gerstle and her son Gustav of Stuttgart, Germany, to immigrate to the United States in 1941. Includes correspondence with the State Department's Visa Division and details about the family's arrangements to secure ship tickets. Although Sophie and Gustav successfully gathered all the necessary paperwork to immigrate, the American consulate in Munich had closed before they were able to successfully leave Germany; both perished in the Holocaust. Also includes restitution paperwork and documents regarding the Levi family (Sophie's daughter Emma married Oscar Levi before the war), and a copy of the Gerstle/Levi family tree.
