Menashe family collection
Consists of documents, identity cards, photographs, and haggadot related to the pre-war, wartime, and post-war experiences of the Menashe family, originally of Thessaloniki, Greece. Includes birth certificates, marriage certificates, and United States naturalization certificates, as well as two family copies of the haggadah. Also includes pre-war, wartime, and post-war photographs of members of the Menashe family. Of the nine children of Issac (Ino) and Sara Menashe, only four survived the war: Pauline immigrated to the United States before the war, Oro and Sylvia survived Auschwitz, and Nissim spent the war hiding in Athens. In total, the Menashes lost sixty members of their close family.
