Deutscher family papers

Document | Accession Number: 2016.122.1

The collection primarily documents the immigration experiences of the Deutscher family as they fled Vienna, Austria after its annexation by Germany in 1938. Biographical materials include birth, marriage, and death certificates; identification papers; and a small amount of restitution papers. The immigration papers include Efraim and Beile Deutscher’s documentation from Italy, and Erwin and Henia Deutscher’s documentation regarding immigration to Palestine and later the United States. There is a small amount of correspondence that includes a postcard written to Efraim Deutscher while he was at the Ferramonti concentration camp in Italy, 1941 from his nephew in Russia; post-war letters written to Erwin from his sister Rosi Deutscher in Vienna, and two telegrams. The photographs include a photograph of Beile at Fort Ontario Emergency Refugee Shelter in Oswego, New York; a photograph of Edmund Deutscher wearing his United States Army uniform; photographs of Erwin; and numerous photocopies pre-war and post-war family photographs.
