Emmy Blau Gold collection
Consists of a history of the Gold family, consisting of Jenö and Emmy Gold and their two daughters, Leonie and Vera, originally of Hamburg, Germany. In 1937, Jenö and Emmy divorced, and Jenö emigrated to the United States. His daughters also emigrated after the war broke out--Leonie(Lonny) and her husband Georgy emigrated through Belgium, and later Vera through Lisbon. As Emmy was unable to obtain a German reentry visa after a visit to Belgium in 1938, she was forced to go to Hungary, as she was of Hungarian descent. In 1944, Emmy was deported from Nagykanizsa, first to Sarvar, and then to Auschwitz where she perished. The collection includes the family history, with copyprints and photographs, written by Lonny Darwin, and six postcards Emmy sent to her ex-husband's brother, Marci, who lived in Budapest, in 1944.
