The Lilienthal and Fraenkel families papers consists of correspondence from Eugen Lilienthal, originally of Berlin, sent following the end of World War II, from Theresienstadt following his liberation from that concentration camp, and from the Deggendorf displaced persons camp, during the period when he was trying to establish contact with the families of his two daughters, who were living in New York. The collection also contains correspondence and documents sent to one of the daughters, Margot Fraenkel, from various officials and aid organizations as she sought to help her father immigrate to the United States. The collection also contains documents related to the immigration of Margot Fraenkel and her husband, Max, when they left Germany in 1939 and immigrated to the United States, including German passports, affidavits from sponsors in the United States, and menus and postcards from the ship that they travelled on, the S.S. Deutschland.
