Kahan family papers
Correspondence, documents, certificates, and related materials, concerning the immigration of the family of Eugene (Jenö) Kahan, originally of Munkacs, Hungary (Mukachevo, Ukraine), and his wife, Gizella, and their daughters, to the United States via Paraguay, after World War II. Documents include identification and marriage documents issued in Hungary following the war, documents issued by the consulate of Paraguay in Czechoslovakia, and correspondence between American agencies, including the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the office of U.S. Senator Theodore Green of Rhode Island, who sought to help the family stay legally in the United States through legislation he introduced on their behalf in Congress.
