Richard Weilheimer papers
The Richard Weilheimer papers include biographical materials, correspondence, a watercolor booklet hand-made in Gurs, and photographic materials documenting the Weilheimer, Wetzler, and Stern families from Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, Germany. Documents reflect the families’ prewar lives in Germany, their deportation to the Gurs concentration camp in southern France in 1940, Richard and Ernst Weilheimer’s relocation to a children’s home and immigration to the United States in 1942, Kurt and Nelly Stern’s earlier immigration to the United States in 1937, and the memorialization of their family members killed in the Holocaust.
