Document | Accession Number: 2017.534.1

Contains photographs depicting the Kahn and the Budge families of Frankfurt am Main, both wealthy Jewish families of bankers and stockbrokers; the photographs date from late 19th century to mid-20th century. The Budge family moved to Hamburg, where they purchased a mansion or “Palais,” which was confiscated by the Nazi regime in 1938. Documents in the collection include a diary written in 1914; an affidavit dated January 28, 1936, which enabled Emil Kahn and his two sons to immigrate to the US in 1937; financial statements and money transfer documents; and a letter written in German by Siegfried Budge.
