Erika Lewin Weinblum papers

Document | Accession Number: 2003.368

The Erika Lewin Weinblum papers document the efforts of Erika Lewin Weinblum in her role as the secretary of the Emergency Committee for Parents and Children of European DPs in Shanghai. The Emergency Committee series contains mainly correspondence to members of Congress and various political bodies including the White House, Department of State, and the United Nations. The correspondence concerns amendments to legislation that would permit Jewish displaced persons in China to immigrate to the United States. The personal items series contains various documents for Erika Lewin Weinblum that are unrelated to the Emergency Committee. These include a letter from a family friend urging her to come to the United States, a photograph of Erika with her husband Jacob, a news clipping and a Chinese vaccination certificate for her father.
