Ella Spiegler papers
Birth certificate, passport, autograph book, newsletter, photograph, and other documents related to the immigration of Ella Spiegler (later Goldstein), who left Austria for the United States in 1939 as one of the fifty children sponsored by Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus.
The Stammbuch is a booklet that was given to Ella before her departure from Vienna in 1939, and in which friends and relatives wrote poetry, greetings, drew pictures, and left other expressions that wished her well as she prepared to leave her homeland. However, since her father, Wilhelm, was the first family member who was able to leave Vienna, he took the book with him, and since he was not able to be reunited with his daughter until 1948, he kept the book with him during those years. As a result, there are also a few pages containing his writings, including drafts of letters to immigration authorities, and notes about expenses.
