Tadek Korn papers

Document | Accession Number: 2017.647.1

The Tadek Korn papers include photographs, clippings, and a biographical statement by violinist Perec Brand that were formerly housed in an album and scrapbook. Photographs from the album primarily depict Tadek Korn, his family, and other displaced persons at the Zeilsheim displaced persons camp between 1945 and 1948. Additional photographs from the album depict the Korn family in America and on vacation in Eilat, Israel and Corinth, Greece. Photographs from the scrapbook include one depicting Tadek Korn wearing the clothing he had on upon arrival at the Zeilsheim DP camp, one depicting him playing the violin, and one depicting a painting (“Portrait of Old Rabbi”) along with a certificate acknowledging that the painting was not subject to an export ban. Clippings describe Korn’s family history during the Holocaust and his talent at playing the violin. Perec Brand’s biographical statement describes his early life, musical education, the murder of his wife and children in the Holocaust, his survival in Stutthof and Buchenwald, teaching Tadek Korn to play the violin at Zeilsheim, and his desire to immigrate to Canada.
