Dora Pollak family correspondence
The Dora Pollak family correspondence consists primarily of letters Dora and Richard Pollak received from family and friends in Czecholovakia, England, and Switzerland during and after the war. Wartime correspondence relates family news, documents efforts to emigrate from Czechoslovakia, describes preparations for deportation to Theresienstadt, and relays thanks for care packages delivered to Theresienstadt. Postwar correspondence summarizes wartime experiences and documents efforts to reclaim and manage family businesses and property lost during the war including the Joseph Taussig and Daniel Spitzer textile factories in Hlinsko and the Alois Neumann glass and crystal factory in Jihlava (Iglau). The collection includes a couple of poems by Holocaust victim Valerie Neumann.
