The collection documents the experiences of Julius and Hedwig Philippi and their daughter Gretel and their immigration to Great Britain shortly after Kristallnacht in 1938. The papers also document the wartime experiences of their extended families in Offenbach, Köln, and Düsseldorf, Germany. Included are identification documents; naturalization certificates; birth, marriage, and death certificates; and family genealogy documents. Wartime correspondence includes letters to Julius from his siblings Klara and Enrico, and correspondence between Caroline Philippi’s husband Karl Ganz and Lord Melchett. Photographs include depictions of Julius Philippi and Gretel Philippi’s handball team. There is also a family album documenting the Hertz family, including Henrietta Hertz, who were relatives of the Philippi family.
