Adam and Roma Zandel papers

Document | Accession Number: 2005.545.1

The Adam and Roma Zandel papers contain documents and correspondence related to Adolf Adam Zandel and Roma Kleczewska, as they attempted to immigrate to the United States. Adam worked as an engineer in France before being granted visas to Brazil and later the United States. Roma escaped the Nazis by fleeing into Romania, before being granted visas to Brazil, then Cuba and ultimately the United States. The collection contains a number of documents related to the immigration of both Roma and Adam, such as visa applications, identity cards, passports, certificates of good conduct, and other related material. The correspondence comes from Roma’s parents and grandparents living in Warsaw under Nazi rule. Also included are publications regarding the ghetto of Warsaw, the surviving Jews of Warsaw, and pages from a book from a gift to Adam and Roma’s daughter, Susan.
