Benjamin Buchsbaum papers

Document | Accession Number: 2016.464.1

The collection primarily contains correspondence sent to and from Benjamin Buchsbaum, of Philadelphia, relating to his efforts to rescue relatives, friends, and strangers from Nazi-occupied Europe and bring them to the United States. Correspondence is often from those he sought to help, as well as others who recognized his efforts, and dates from the period of the Holocaust up through the 1960s. The album was presented to Buchsbaum by his family on the occasion of his 70th birthday in 1958, but he added letters to the album that he received from some of the correspondents in subsequent years as well. Also included are receipts of money orders he sent to family and friends; and two photographs of Benjamin, his daughter Jean, and son William. Also included is an additional album that was assembled as a tribute to the life and career of Buchsbaum. The album includes letters of tribute, correspondence, photographs, clippings, and articles authored by Buchsbaum.
