Fried and Faktor family papers
The Fried and Faktor families papers consist of biographical materials and photographs documenting Ann Fried Buchsbaum, originally of Vienna, Austria; her parents, Bernard (Judka) Fried and Laura Dickmann Fried Faktor; and her stepfather, Alois (Lou) Faktor, originally of Prague, and his family. The records are chiefly related to their lives in prewar Vienna, their efforts to leave Austria following German annexation, Ann’s time at a children’s dormitory in Holland (1938-1939), and Laura and Alois’ time in London and Prague. Also included are photographs of Ann’s husband, Walter Buchsbaum, a refugee from Vienna, who served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and photographs of the Faktor family farm.
Biographical materials consist primarily of identification and immigration papers such as travel documents, passports, and notices of application for visas documenting Ann Fried Buchsbaum, Laura and Alois Faktor, and Bernard Fried. Also included are memorial books used by Alois Faktor’s family in the early 1900s, a letter documenting the deportations of some of Alois Faktor’s relatives, and two postcards from Ruth Neu, one of the women who ran the dormitory where Ann lived in the Netherlands.
The photographs consist largely of images of Ann Fried Buchsbaum’s childhood in Vienna, of her parents during that period, and of Laura and Alois Faktor in London and Czechoslovakia in the 1940s. Also included are 10 images of Ann and other children of Huis Overvoorde. Images of the families of Laura and Alois Faktor and the Faktor family farm are also included.
