Seitel and Knoll families papers

Document | Accession Number: 2017.232.1

The Setiel and Knoll families papers consist of biographical materials, correspondence, and photographs documenting the Seitel and Knoll families from Nadwórna, Poland, before the Holocaust and Chaim Eli and Frieda Knoll Seitel’s immigration to Palestine around 1939. Biographical materials include Frieda’s Nadwórna elementary school report cards, Chaim’s military document, their marriage certificate, a ketubah, receipts documenting the couple’s support of the Jewish National Fund and World Zionist Organization, and information about their baby boy, Eliezer. This series also includes a notebook that appears to contain poems and notes in Yiddish or Hebrew. Correspondence includes letters and postcards from Chaim in Krakow to Frieda in Nadwórna from 1936 and 1938 as well as letters and postcards to Chaim and Frieda in Palestine from family and friends in Nadwórna and elsewhere from 1938-1942 and 1981. Photographs depict the Seitel and Knoll families in Nadwórna and group portraits of the Dror “Freiheit” Zionist Socialist organization in Poland, and they include photographs given to Chaim and Frieda before their emigration to Palestine.
