William Rosenwald Family Association selected records

Document | Accession Number: 2017.456.1

The collection contains affidavits, correspondence, reports, financial documents, and similar materials documenting the philanthropic activities of the children of late Sears, Roebuck and Company president Julius Rosenwald. Referred to as the “German Relatives Program,” their activities enabled Rosenwald and Nussbaum relatives, members of their extended families, and numerous others emigrate from Germany and escape antisemitic persecution in the late 1930s. The records also document the financial and other material support provided by the project to those whom they had helped immigrate, assistance that in some cases lasted for decades after their arrival.
