Also in Erwin Tepper collection
The collection consists of correspondence, documents, photographs, and writings related to the experiences of Erwin Tepper and his parents, Juda Ber and Schifra Tepper, originally from Vienna, Austria, who immigrated to the United States in 1939.
Documents, correspondence, photographs, and writings, related to the immigration of Erwin Tepper and his parents to the United States from Austria, as a result of Nazi persecution, in 1939. In particular, the material documents how Erwin Tepper was selected as one of the "50 children" by American philanthropists Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, who sought to rescue Jewish children from Austria and resettle them in the United States. In addition to photographs of Tepper's family, and of his journey as one of the 50 children, the collection contains documents related to his parents' immigration, and later material collected or compiled by Tepper for presentations about the history of the "50 children" at reunions and conferences in the United States between 2002 and 2010.
