Charles A. Weingarten collection

Collection
Collection Summary
The collection consists of artifacts, children's drawings, documents, and photographs relating to the experiences of Charles A. Weingarten and his family in prewar and wartime France where he lived as a hidden child, and after the war while he recuperated in Switzerland, and then returned to France. Charles Albert Weingarten is the son of Margarethe (Marguerite) Weingarten and Rudolph Gelb. He was born on Jan. 13, 1941, in Nice, France. In 1943 when the Germans invaded the area, Margarethe hid with Charles in the basement of a building in rue Verdi in Nice. In July 1943 Margarethe and Charles obtained false papers and moved to the grounds of a villa owned by the Matteudi family. They remained there through the end of World War II.
Provenance
The collection was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2002 and 2014 by Charles A. Weingarten.
