Neumann family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2015.576.1

The Neumann family papers consist of biographical materials, photographs, and restitution files documenting the Neumann family from Vienna, Gertrud and Ernst Neumann’s immigration from Vienna to the United States in 1940, and their children Karl and Greta’s immigration from Sweden via Riga, Vladivostok, Tokyo, Vancouver, and Seattle in 1941. Biographical materials include birth, marriage, registration, immigration, medical, military, and student records. Photographs primarily date from before World War II and depict the Neumann family and their relatives including, among others, Ernst’s brother Paul and their brother Leo’s wife Elsa and daughters Eva, and Lisl. Photocopies of a January 1941 newspaper article document Karl’s and Greta’s arrival in the United States. Restitution files document the family’s pre-war assets and Ernst and Karl’s efforts to receive restitution including health insurance and pension payments.
