    Please select from the following options:


    The Franziska Nunnally papers include three postcards from her mother, Irma Huppert, documenting her last two weeks in Vienna before her deportation and death in Minsk and a letter from her brother, Leopold Huppert, documenting his internment at St. Cyprien. Irma’s first postcard reveals her concern that she would soon be removed from her home, her second letter describes how she was arrested shortly after her first postcard and the conditions of her detention at the Sperlschule, and her third postcard describes her preparations for her deportation to an unknown location (Minsk). Leopold’s letter is a photocopy and describes his internment in Belgium, deportation to France, and conditions at St. Cyprien. Leopold’s letter is accompanied by a translation and introductory information by Franziska Nunnally.

    Collection Creator
    Franziska H. Nunnally
    Franziska (Frances) Nunnally was born June 29, 1921 in Vienna to Ferdinand (1884-1941) and Irma Huppert (1889-1941). Franziska escaped to England in May 1939 and immigrated to the United States in 1950. Her brother, Leopold (1912-1945?), escaped to Brussels but was interned there, deported in May 1940 to France, and transferred to St. Cyprien. He seems to have lived in hiding in Paris until 1944, when he was detained at Drancy, deported to Auschwitz, and transferred to Buchenwald and Mauthausen. He is believed to have died at Flossenbürg. Her mother was detained in November 1941 and deported to Minsk, where she was executed. Her father died shortly before his wife’s deportation. Her grandmother, Sophie Schlesinger, perished at Theresienstadt.
