Rosenberg and Mosler families papers

Document | Accession Number: 2017.327.1

The collection documents the families of Elsie Mosler (born Ilse Rosenberg in Hamburg) and her husband, Claude Mosler (born Klaus Mosler in Berlin). Both families fled Germany due to antisemitic persecution by the Nazis during the 1930s. Biographical material includes Hermann Rosenberg’s German army papers from World War I, birth and marriage certificates, a diary written in German and English kept by Elsie as a teenager, report cards of Ernest Mosler, and Claude Mosler’s United States Army papers. Photographs primarily document pre-war family life and travel in Europe and wartime life in New York. The majority of photographs are contained in albums, many of which are annotated.
