Leonore Gumpert correspondence

Document | Accession Number: 2003.229

The Leonore Gumpert correspondence consists of letters and postcards dated 1938-1942 to Leonore in America from her mother, Clara Joseph, in Kassel and Darmstadt and from her sister, Inge, in Kassel, Darmstadt, Brussels, Seyre, and Chateau de la Hille. Some correspondence from Germany includes messages from Leonore's aunt Martha and grandmother Josephine. There are also a few letters and postcards from Leonore's father, Julius, and from relatives in New York. Most of the letters and postcards describe daily life in Germany, Belgium, and France and relate efforts to immigrate. One October 1938 letter from Clara Joseph includes recipes. Some of the letters and postcards are accompanied by English translations provided by the donor.
